3-year-old boy survives scrape by NYC subway train

The train scraped his head as it pulled into the station; a bystander who was a doctor at the station cared for him until an ambulance arrived

The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Police say a 3-year-old boy has survived a scrape with a New York City subway train after falling on the station platform.

The New York Post reports the toddler was injured Friday night when he fell at the East Broadway station while waiting for the F train with his mother after his prekindergarten class. The arriving train scraped his head as it pulled into the station.

The boy's father, Danny Moy, told the newspaper that the cut was deep enough that he could see his child's skull.
