Injured but seemed OK

Hoboken resident Joseph managed to capture the scene shortly after it happened.

It looks like some guy got hit by the light rail! I wonder how?

I mean it’s natural that “accidents happen” from time to time, and despite being at a train station with heavy moving objects, safety barriers and warning apparatus – makes it no safer than crossing the street in Hoboken.

One thing I’d be worried about is if those stupid thugs that play the “knockout game,” want to “expand their horizons” and start playing the “push in front of the train” game.

Then, I’d be sure the public wouldn’t mind if a vigilante like Charles Bronson from Death Wish made his rounds…

I passed through around 10am and according to one of the workers, the man is no longer with us. RIP.
