Footage of a woman attacked in a subway station is circulating in Facebook posts and news reports that claim it shows a student who died after she was hit by a train in New York in May 2022. However, the video shows an assault in 2019 unrelated to the student, whose cause of death was still under investigation, police told AFP on May 23, 2022.
