A man sleeping on the tracks of the “E”/”M”/”R” station in Woodside lost his legs to a subway train Sunday.

According to CBS New York, around 4:40 a.m.,  a 26-year-old man from Elizabeth, New Jersey, was laying on the tracks in an allegedly drunken state, when a northbound “E” train severed his legs.

He was taken to Elmhurst Hospital and is expected to survive.
