A pregnant woman was rescued from the D train tracks by a group of heroic straphangers Thursday morning after falling from the subway platform, DNAinfo first reported.

The 33-year-old, 9-month pregnant woman felt dizzy before her tumble onto the northbound roadbed at the 71st Street station at 8:40am, an NYPD spokesperson said.

A crowd of “good Samaritans” pulled her out, say cops. By the time police arrived, the woman had already been rescued.

She was taken to Lutheran Medical Center for a head injury, and is listed in stable condition, according to the NYPD.

  1. I cannot believe it, finally Ellefson, the ugly little illiterate punk
    is gone. What did he do, did he commit some crime? Lol, I am much better
    than Ellefson. In fact, a whole heck of alot of us are. We must not
    allow a Latino or an Asian at Corner Media. Therefore, I propose the
    best solution to this problem, hiring me as the new editor of Sheepshead
    Bites. I am BOAT (The best of all time). I will propose to Liana the
    option of me becoming a 50% owner of Corner Media. I used to own
    RussianNY.com, so I am familiar with covering this neighborhood. And
    nothing says Sheepshead Bay like the Russian speaking community does.
    People from the former Soviet Republics account for roughly a third of
    the total residents in and around Sheepshead.

  2. Last I checked, this site is called Bensonhurst Bean and hence covers news in BENSONHURST, not Sheepshead Bay (another neighborhood); if Sheepshead Bay is indeed your area of expertise as you so modestly claim above, then post this confusing paragraph on the Sheepshead Bites website.

  3. So you are outnumbered 2 to 1 in Sheepshead and 1000 to 1 here. I am with Emerald5Forever – take this nonsense to the other site.

  4. That little ugly illiterate punk & you the non ugly non illiterate Russian punk who keeps reminding us how you used to run RussianNY,com, who cares? What is wrong with a Latino or an Asian ? And Mr. Ellifson was neither by the way, Maybe he left because he could not stand all the racist comments. Mr. Benfeld you are a typical East European racist , If you don’t like our diversity here, then go the hell back to you damn hated Russia. If your the best, Lord help out country, Another ego-maniac.
