A man who jumped in front of an oncoming No. 7 Train in Times Square in New York survived the apparent suicide attempt.

The man, who is believed to be around 60 years old, pushed several women out of the way before he jumped in front of it.

“It was good luck because the train was coming slowly,” an MTA worker told the New York Post. He jumped in front of the train at around 9:40 a.m.

The man was sent to Bellevue Hospital and is in critical condition, reported the New York Daily News.

Service on the No. 7 line between Hunters Point station and Times Square was delayed by an hour.
