NYPD: Eight people spotted riding atop Brooklyn subway


Eight people have been spotted riding atop a subway which crossed the Williamsburg Bridge into Brooklyn.

The New York Police Department (NYPD) confirmed it was investigating the shocking incident on June 10.

Video taken by New Yorker Chris ‘Goose” Gossling showed the daredevils standing on a J train.

“These people just came over the Williamsburg bridge on top of the train,” Gosling wrote on Twitter, where he posted the video here showing eight people on top of two train cars, with some running along them.

Gosling’s video clocked up millions of views on Twitter.

It was not the first time someone subway surfed on the J train.

A subway surfer was killed in 2021 when he fell from the train near the Williamsburg Bridge.

In 2017, a 27-year-old man died when he fell off a train while subway surfing.

Likewise, in 2019, a 14-year-old boy reportedly died while surfing on a train in Queens.
