October 14, 2002 -- A man "surfing" on top of a subway train was critically hurt when he hit his head on a beam, tumbled to the tracks and was run over early yesterday, police said. Nasad Alesky, 35, was riding on the roof of a northbound No. 1 train at 2:40 a.m. when the accident occurred as the train reached the 181st Street station, cops said.
He struck an overhead beam and fell onto the tracks, and the wheels of the train ran over him.
Alesky, who is from Staten Island, was taken to Harlem Hospital.
Investigators determined that Nasad had been riding between cars when he decided to climb onto the roof of the moving train and go "subway surfing."
Of course his family will probably sue the city for mega-bucks claiming there should have been a warning against riding on top of the trains.
