A 31-year-old Bronx man fell to his death yesterday while defecating between subway cars on a moving 6 train, cops said.
The man fell onto the tracks and was run over by a northbound train as it was leaving the 125th Street station shortly after 4 p.m., police said.
Around the same time on the opposite platform, a bloody and extremely battered man crawled up from the tracks — just as a northbound 5 train was pulling in — with a broken pelvis, severe buttocks injuries and cuts.
That man — who sources said was Manuce Dulcio, 50 — might have been hit by the train, cops said.
It’s unclear why he was on the tracks. Dulcio was “very intoxicated,” a police source said.
Officials had initially said that the men had been involved in a fight.
But they now believe the bizarre incidents were totally unrelated.
Riders were stuck on the 5 train for 45 minutes after the incident.
