Anthony Ruggerio, 50, was smoking a cigarette on his lunch break when he heard a noise
“It was loud. Like rocks falling on the platform above me,” he told the Post. “I turned, I ducked, when I turned back there was a lady on the floor. She turned to her side and [groaned]. I thought she was dead.”
She was taken to Weill Cornell Hospital where she is being treated for a broken ankle, police said.
