Woman Dies After Jumping Out Of Moving MTA Bus


A woman who was asked to get off a Brooklyn MTA Bus pulled the door open and jumped to her death Thursday morning during rush-hour, according to witnesses who spoke with nbcnewyork.com.

The unidentified victim was asked by the driver to get off the bus because she was kicking seats and windows while the bus was in motion.

As the driver started to pull the bus over the woman decided to rip the doors open and jump from the bus. Unfortunately, she mistimed her leap and ended up bouncing off a utility pole, landing directly in the path of the rear wheels of the bus, where she was crushed.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.
