This disturbing teen trend almost took the life of another young New Yorker

Making mistakes and learning from those mistakes is a crucial part of growing up. 

However, the chances of young people making very costly or deadly mistakes have increased exponentially with the creation of the internet. 

And this disturbing teen trend almost took the life of another young New Yorker. 

Another New York teen nearly died after participating in this viral trend 

Young people have always participated in odd and confusing trends. 

Having said that, some of these trends have taken a disturbing and dangerous turn in recent years. 

Many young people spend massive amounts of time glued to their iPads, learning these trends from TikTok and other social media platforms. 

You might remember the Tide Pod challenge, where young people were dared to eat Tide Pods, which can be lethal. 

Subway surfing has also become a viral trend in urban parts of America, where young people jump on top of moving subway trains riding them like a surfboard. 

Just last Friday a 14-year-old nearly died after attempting to “subway surf” in Queens according to the New York Police Department.

The incident happened at around 10:30 am on the northbound number 7 train as it pulled into the 103rd Street–Corona Plaza station in the Queens neighborhood of Corona. 

According to authorities, the 14-year-old fell off the train, narrowly escaping death. 

Authorities found the young person still conscious, lying on the tracks as they arrived. 

First responders quickly took the boy to a Harlem Hospital, where he received minimal treatment. 

Last year, the Metro Transit Authority (MTA), New York City officials, and New York state officials launched an anti-subway surfing campaign called “Subway Surfing Kills – Ride Inside, Stay Alive.”

New York Governor Kathy Hochul addressed this initiative, claiming unironically, “The safety of New Yorkers is my top priority.” 

“Through this innovative partnership, young New Yorkers will hear directly from their teachers and peers about the extreme danger of subway surfing, saving lives and preventing more tragedies. New York will continue to do everything we can to keep our young people safe on the subways,” Hochul added.

According to MTA and New York City officials, this trend typically picks up during summer months due to warmer weather and the fact that many children roam the streets of New York City unsupervised.    

Parents ought to start taking the safety of their children seriously 

In many large cities like New York City and Chicago, young people often roam the streets unsupervised in large numbers. 

Parents do not seem interested in parenting their children, allowing them to participate in dangerous trends such as subway surfing. 

Although it can be easy to say “kids will be kids”, trends like subway surfing kill children regularly and also put the lives of first responders and transit workers at risk. 

At the end of the day, parents must start doing their jobs as parents so that these sorts of behaviors become a thing of the past.
