NEW YORK (AP) - New York City police said a young woman stumbling around on a subway platform not far from Times Square fell onto the tracks and was killed by a train.

The accident happened before dawn on New Year's Day at a station just one stop from where revelers gather in Times Square to celebrate at midnight.

Police said the victim was in her 20s. Her name wasn't released.

Subway deaths are common in the city, but attention has been high in recent weeks after two men were pushed to their deaths in December.
