UPPER WEST SIDE, Manhattan (WABC) — A 28-year-old suspect has been arrested and charged following the death of a man who was pushed onto train tracks at an Upper West Side subway station early Friday morning.

The incident happened just before 2 a.m. at West 96th Street and Broadway Station.

The 34-year-old victim was swept onto the rails, and he hit his head on one of the rails.

He was taken to hospital in critical condition, where he later died of his injuries.

A 28-year-old man, identified as Andre Boyce, was taken into custody and later charged with manslaughter.

It appears that there was some sort of argument between the men before the incident, which spilled onto the platform.
