A young actress was killed by a subway train early Saturday morning.
Helen McDonald-Phalon, 21, was on the subway platform around 3:30 a.m. Saturday, when she accidentally became wedged between a train car and the platform.
The unfortunate girl was dragged down the platform and onto the tracks by the train, killing her at the scene, according to police.
The attractive young lady was a talented singer, dancer and actress, and had recently moved to New York City to pursue her career in musical theater.
Helen was returning home from a night of drinking with her colleagues and was standing near the subway platform’s edge, investigators reported.
As a subway train began leaving the station, the intoxicated young female stumbled, falling against the moving train, and her clothing became caught on the train car, authorities said.
The frightened girl struggled but became painfully wedged in the tight gap between the train and the platform, making her escape impossible.
The beautiful young actress was dragged, screaming, down the platform in front of shocked onlookers.
When the speeding train reached the end of the platform and entered the tunnel, the terrified girl was crushed down through the narrow gap between the wall and train car.
The actress’s body was pulled under the train and fell onto the tracks, where it went under the wheels of the rear subway cars.
An NYPD spokesperson confirmed that Helen McDonald-Phalon was found unresponsive with severe body trauma on the track floor.
Emergency medical services responded, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.
Her death was described as a “horrible and very uncommon incident” by a spokesperson for the New York transportation agency.
