Man Falls on Subway Track, Excessive Spitting, Unauthorized Move-Out and Other Roosevelt Island Public Safety Incidents For Week of 8/11- 18/08

You tube Video of Man being pulled up from Subway tracks after having fallen from platform for illustrative purposes only. Not actual Roosevelt Island incident

On Saturday night, I noticed several Fire and Police Department vehicles parked next to the Roosevelt Island subway station and inquired of an officer what was happening. He told me that a person fell onto the subway tracks and was being transported to the hospital. Saturday's Roosevelt Island Public Safety report adds this:
Aided- Person fell in the subway tracks and removed by Anonomos person. Aided sustained injury to shin and was transported to the Hospital by EMS.
In the back of every subway rider's mind, at one time or another, is the concern of being pushed or falling onto the subway tracks. At the same time we also wonder what we would do if this happened to someone else in our presence. Would we be willing and able to help that person off the subway track and back onto the platform even if there was an oncoming train approaching? At least in Saturday's Roosevelt Island incident there was an anonymous person willing to do so. Good job to whoever was responsible!

Other public safety incidents on Roosevelt Island this past week included a summons for repeated and excessive spitting (8/15), an unauthorized move out at Manhattan Park (8/16), an investigation into a bus driver not picking up a passenger (8/15) and breaking up a fight between two groups at the basketball court (8/13).

"Unauthorized move out" as a police (well, PSD) issue? Scary...

I am very sure the "unauthorized move out" has something to do with wanting to use the freight elevator w/o reserving it or wanting to use it on a weekend. The concierge didn't let the person use it and he in return got all pissy.

If you want to move in or out you have to arrange it with the management office. That's pretty much standard procedure in all high-rise apartment buildings.
