A 26-year-old man was struck by a Brooklyn-bound F train at the Second Avenue station this morning. He was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he is “conscious and alert,” according to a police spokesperson.

At about 10:30 a.m. the man was walking along the platform when he fell between two cars as the train pulled into the station, the police said. The train had almost stopped when the accident occurred, potentially averting more severe injuries or fatality.

The extent of the man’s injuries are unknown, but the police said he would likely survive the collision.

Police blocked off the platform and turned away commuters for about an hour while they investigated the scene. Trains are now running as scheduled.
