A straphanger died after being struck by a train in Astoria on Thursday.
A Manhattan bound N train struck a woman in the head as it pulled into the 30th Avenue station on Thursday around 2:04 p.m., police said.
Recent updates say the woman, who police say was around 60 years old, was observed on the platform, walking into the train by bystanders, according to police.
The impact pushed the woman back onto the platform and she suffered serious head injuries.
EMS rushed the woman, who did not have any ID on her, to Mount Sinai hospital in Queens but she was pronounced dead upon arrival.
No criminality is suspected and the investigation remains ongoing.
