A 49-year-old woman was pushed onto the northbound F train tracks at Second Avenue during an unprovoked attack last night around 9, according to published reports.
There wasn't a train approaching the station at the time. Several people jumped onto the tracks and helped the woman back up to the platform. Police said that she left the station under her own power and was taken to Bellevue, where she is in stable condition with a head injury.
Per NBC 4: "Police [said] that the suspect told the woman 'I'm going to push you' and the suspect then shoved the woman."
Police described the suspect as a black male in his 20s wearing dark clothing. He remained at large this morning.

The Daily News spoke with the shove victim, Kamala Shrestha, a mother of three, at Bellevue.
“He said something I don’t understand, he said ‘Do you want to die with me?’” or something. I didn’t understand what it was.”
He was skinny but strong and he shoved her hard, she said.
“I didn’t want to die. I yelled for someone, and somebody came, two guys,” she explained. They pulled her up, but the man escaped.
