A 28-year-old man died when he jumped a subway turnstile in Queens on Sunday and broke his neck landing on the cement floor, cops said.
The man was “attempting to evade the fare” at the Forest Hills-71st Avenue train station around 6:45 a.m. when he hopped the turnstile, a police spokesman said.
He came crashing down on his head on the station’s cement floor and broke his neck, cops and sources said. He was pronounced dead on the scene, police said.
The man’s identity wasn’t immediately released by cops. The station provides E, F, M and R line service.
