Woman killed by F train at 34th St. station in Midtown causes rush hour delays



A woman was killed after she jumped in front of a Brooklyn-bound F subway train Wednesday, causing massive rush hour delays through the heart of the city, officials said.

The unidentified woman, who is believed to be in her 20s, was at the 34th St.-Herald Square F train stop at Sixth Ave. in Midtown about 7:45 a.m. when witnesses saw her jump onto the tracks as a Coney Island-bound F train came into the station.

The woman landed under the train’s wheels and died at the scene, police confirmed. Her name was not released as cops track down family members.

As the investigation into the woman’s death continued, the MTA rerouted all Brooklyn-bound F and M trains beginning as far north as the Jackson Heights-Roosevelt Ave. station in Queens.

Beginning at that station, all Manhattan-bound F trains were put on the E line to Queens Plaza, where they were directed to the G line all the way to Bergen St. in downtown Brooklyn.

Some F trains were being allowed to run on the E line all the way to W. 4th St.-Washington Square, the MTA said.

M trains were also moved to the E line from 53rd St. to W. 4th St.
