BROOKLYN — A man was killed after being electrocuted Monday morning while walking on the tracks near the Broadway G train stop, cops said.
Another man was hurt. Matthew Zeno, 30, and another man were walking north on the southbound side of the subway, near Union Avenue, when Zeno paused to urinate and inadvertantly contacted the third rail, according to the FDNY and NYPD.
The second man, who was not named by police, tried to help Zeno, but sustained an electric shock as well, police said. Both were rushed to Woodhull Hospital, where Zeno died of cardiac arrest, officials said.
The second man was listed in serious but stable condition, an FDNY spokeswoman said. Regular train service had resumed for the morning rush-hour commute, according to the MTA's website. From here:
