According to Gothamist, the train conductor spotted Herod-Cross on the tracks and the catwalk inside the tunnel before the accident occurred. Additionally, a group of teenagers who were accompanying her reportedly fled the scene following the incident. Herod-Cross marks at least the second teenager to lose their life in the Brooklyn subway system this year. In January, a 14-year-old boy tragically died after slipping from the roof of a train while subway surfing.

Law enforcement is currently investigating the incidents, although foul play is not suspected. These occurrences took place just a day after 54-year-old Jason Volz was fatally pushed in front of an oncoming train at 125th Street and Lexington Avenue in Manhattan. The alleged perpetrator, 24-year-old Carlton McPherson, had a history of prior arrests, including several in Brooklyn.

In addition to these incidents, two other individuals were struck and killed by subway trains in Manhattan this week. On Tuesday, a man lost his life after being struck at the 42nd Street-Bryant Park/Fifth Avenue station. The following day, a 51-year-old man died after being hit by a train at the Grand Central-42nd Street station. Foul play is not suspected in either of these cases. These recent deaths have once again sparked criticism from commuters. The city has already deployed hundreds of additional measures this year alone to address safety concerns.
