Within a 24-hour period, two men jumped in front of “F” trains at Queens subway stations, said police.
Around 11:45 a.m. Wednesday an unidentified man leapt onto the subway tracks as a Brooklyn-bound train entered the Jackson Heights-Roosevelt Avenue stop.
Only a day later, another apparent suicide took place around 10:30 a.m. Thursday at the Briarwood-Van Wyck Boulevard station when a 39-year-man also jumped in front of an ‘F’ train.
Both men were pronounced dead at the scene and no criminality is suspected in either incident.
