Woman with baby dies after falling down NYC subway stairs
NEW YORK (AP) — Authorities say a Connecticut woman has died at a hospital after falling down stairs at a Manhattan subway station while holding her 1-year-old daughter.
The medical examiner will determine what caused the death of 22-year-old Malaysia Goodson of Stamford, Connecticut.
Police say Goodson’s child was not hurt. Police say it’s unknown whether the child was in a stroller during the incident as initially reported by authorities.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which also is investigating, calls Goodson’s death “a heartbreaking tragedy.”
The incident occurred at around 8 p.m. Monday at the Seventh Avenue B-D-E station in midtown Manhattan.
