A man rode on top of a 6 train in Manhattan before he reportedly hit his head on a beam and fell between two cars, according to reports.

A transit source told the New York Daily News that the subway surfer fell down when the train made a stop at the 96th St. and Lexington Ave.

“He was surfing,” the source was quoted as saying. “It was a nasty head injury. There was a lot of blood down there.”

Witnesses apparently saw the man hit his head on a beam above the tracks before he fell.

The train made a regular stop.

The man was rushed to the Metropolitan Hospital and was still alive.

DNAInfo said the man was 45 years old. It is unclear if he was run over by the train when he fell.

Service on the southbound 5 and 6 trains was disrupted due to the incident.
