NXIVM SEX CULT TRIAL CONTINUES - VIDEO

CONAN O'BRIEN - COMPLETE JOKE THEFT         SETTLEMENT COVERAGE

More about the woman killed last Sat. morning (3am. after *what sounded like to me* a night of heavy drinking) by MTA trains...

You read that right, she was killed by "trains" not just one train. It's maybe a little unusual, although I can't say for sure, only the cops who pick up the bodies and investigate these things would know. Maybe it's not too atypical for someone to get clipped by one train, but knocked into the path of another.

This was different though. The NY Post reported that the woman "had somehow become wedged between the platform and the train."

NY Daily News reported: "The train had already been pulling out of the station for 100 feet when she touched the side."

While mulling this, I recalled that 14th St.-Union Square, where this happened, is the only one I've seen which has a moving platform.

The moving platform is designed to close a larger-than-usual gap between the platform and train which is apparently caused by the curved platform and track there. Once the train has stopped, the metal section of platform moves out maybe another 8 inches (or less).

There must be video of this incident - this is one of the busiest stations in Manhattan - so you'd think it wouldn't be a mystery. When the train pulls out - link - you can see the moving platform retracts.

With this kind of machinery in place, her state of mind (she'd had a bad experience at work, according to her boyfriend, and had been out with a co-worker the whole night, possibly or probably drinking heavily), her youth and the fact that she was a transplant from Summerville, SC who had only been in the city for 3-4 years at most (she met and fell in love with her surviving bf in Sept. 2016), it seems possible she could've been standing on the moving platform, unaware that it would move again AFTER the train begins to roll out. Rationally, you would think the platform would retract before the train moves an inch.

"These lies are destroying our character and reputation in our personal and professional lives."

“The 16 men we arrested allegedly used social media to stalk victims they believed were vulnerable children who could be sexually exploited,” New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said. “Parents need to know that the profiles of underage girls and boys we posted on social media to catch these offenders could easily have been profiles of their own children.”

This model wasn't in any of the nyccr stories today or ever, as far as I know. But the bikini she's wearing IS made out of tape. Tape bikinis are a great reminder to keep broadening our range of interests and hobbies, and never be too stuck on one thing to look at another.
