Tram SURFING HORROR: 15-year-old in basic condition subsequent to striking head while riding on NYC train

A 15-year-old tram surfer was gripping to life early Friday after he struck his head while riding on the top of a 7 train in Queens, sources said.

Cops found the youngster oblivious and experiencing a serious head injury on top of a train vehicle inside the 111th Street station in North Corona at around 6:30 p.m. Thursday night, as indicated by policing.

Police accept the kid was riding on the south-bound 7 Train on raised tracks when he struck his head on an obscure item.

Sensational pictures from the scene shows officials and paramedics taking the youngster off the train vehicle rooftop and laying him down onto the metro stage. The adolescent’s head was draining lavishly in the recording.

He was rushed to Elmhurst Hospital, where the teen was in critical condition.

Following the incident, 7 trains were delayed in both directions.

The boy’s tragic accident is at least the second subway surfing stunt in less than two weeks.

Earlier this month, a video posted on Twitter showed a group of about eight people running on top of the cars of a Brooklyn-bound J train as it crossed the Williamsburg Bridge.

Some of the subway surfers were seen carelessly sprinting and skipping across the length of the train. The suspects in that incident have not been identified.

Last October, a 32-year-old man fell to his death while surfing atop a J train at Essex Street.

In 2019, a 14-year-old was killed while hitching a ride on the roof of a Manhattan-bound 7 train near Queensboro Plaza. That same year, reports of subway surfing increased by 15% from a year earlier and transit officials believed the number was greatly undercounted, according to an investigation by The City.

MTA officials chastised any potential daredevils looking to catch their thrills atop a moving subway train.

“Riding on top of a subway car is reckless, extremely dangerous and inconsiderate as it causes significant delays for other New Yorkers,”

Pat Warren, MTA Chief Safety and Security Officer, said in a statement.

“Seeking a thrill that promises heartache for family and friends is foolhardy; choose other avenues to have some fun, ones that demonstrate respect for those you care about.”
