Manhattan Tribeca (WABC) — Subway riders gathered Tuesday night to help a woman who was pushed onto the subway tracks in Tribeca.
She was pushed over at Chambers Street station just after 11 p.m., officials said.
Bystanders rushed to save the 34-year-old woman before any oncoming trains approached.
She was then taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital with minor leg injuries but is in stable condition, authorities said.

“Of course he got spooked, he got hurt, he got scratched. Something had to be done. People aren’t safe, this is lower Manhattan, Tribeca. These things shouldn’t have happened,” David Wordell said. Said his wife knew the victim.
The suspect escaped, but bystanders watched him closely.
He is described as a light-skinned man in his 40s, approximately 6 feet tall, wearing a red shirt, tan boots and dark sweatpants.
Police will continue to survey the area with photos of the suspect, officials said.
Investigation is ongoing.
