A father has been pronounced dead after jumping in front of a Bronx train while holding his 5 year old daughter this morning!
The #NewYorkTimes reports the incident took place at the Kingsbridge train station stop within the Bronx, New York area around 8AM. The 45 year old father was spotted holding his daughter’s hand as they awaited for the train. Sources have indicated that once the train pulled into the station the father jumped directly in front of it holding on to his daughter tightly.
The father was pronounced dead on the scene and his daughter received minor injuries which have been declared as non life threatening. She was taken to Jacobi medical center to receive treatment, where she is accompanied with her mom. Two commuters who leaped on to the track to help the little girl suffered minor injuries and were taken to St Barnabas hospital.
The number 4 train was partially delayed as officials investigate the ordeal. As of right now there has been no information forwarded upon the direct motive of the incident.
We will keep their family in our prayers.
