A 14-year-old subway rider who surfed on the train was injured and taken to a hospital in NYC after hitting his head at a station.

On Sunday, a subway surfing incident in Queens left a 14-year-old boy injured, adding to the growing number of young victims of this hazardous trend.

According to the NYPD, as the southbound 7 train pulled into the 111th Street Station a little before 4:30 p.m., a teenager riding on top of it accidentally hit a beam with his head.

According to the authorities, the young boy was taken to Elmhurst Hospital in a stable condition.

A fearless teenager has climbed to the top of a massive cell tower and live-streamed the entire experience on social media. The heart-pounding video shows the daredevil scaling the tower with impressive agility and fearlessness. Despite the obvious danger, the teenager managed to capture the entire climb on camera, giving viewers a glimpse of the stunning view from the top of the tower. The video has since gone viral on social media, with many viewers expressing both awe and concern for the teen’s safety.

Located above ground, the Corona 7 train station boasts an overhang that extends across the tracks, providing roughly a foot of space between the beams and the roof of passing trains.

There have been several fatal incidents recently in the city that were connected to the dangerous stunt, and unfortunately, the injury sustained by the teenager is just the latest.

According to officials, more and more teenagers are engaging in subway surfing as they try to imitate the risky behavior that is often shared on popular social media platforms like TikTok and Instagram.

According to the MTA’s data, the number of reports concerning individuals riding outside of trains, including on top of them, has increased significantly during the first six months of 2023. The figures reveal a total of 450 reported incidents, a significant rise from the 262 cases reported during the same period in 2019.
