14-year-old boy injured while subway surfing on Queens train



A 14-year-old boy was injured while riding atop a Queens subway train on Sunday, police said.

The teen was dangerously surfing a Manhattan-bound No. 7 train as it rumbled toward the 111th St. Station in Corona just after 4:20 p.m., according to cops.

As the train pulled into the elevated station, the boy’s head slammed into a beam.

Medics raced the teen to Elmhurst Hospital, where he was expected to survive.

In January, 14-year-old Alam Reyes was killed when he fell from a Coney Island-bound F train he was surfing in Brooklyn.

Last year, the MTA and Mayor Adams’ office launched a campaign with the motto “Subway surfing kills — ride inside, stay alive” to deter riding outside city trains. In November, the NYPD announced it would launch drones to monitor people riding atop elevated trains.
