Man got caught in train doors, dragged

A 20-year-old man in New York City died Monday after he was dragged by a subway train, police say. 

A preliminary investigation found the man was running to catch the Manhattan train when a piece of his clothing or bag became stuck in the train doors, according to the New York Police Department.

“The victim was then dragged and struck by the train,” NYPD said in a statement. 

Police said they responded to a 911 call reporting the incident just before 5 p.m. Monday. The man, who was not identified, was pronounced dead at the scene.
