Subway fall victim awarded millions

February 18, 2009 7:24:33 AM PST
A Brooklyn man who was drunk when he fell into the path of a subway train and lost part of his leg has been awarded $2.3 million by a jury. Dustin Dibble has admitted that he was so drunk he doesn't even remember the incident at the Union Square subway station in April of 2006.

But Dibble's lawyer argued in court that the motorman had time to stop the train when he saw the 25-year-old lying on the tracks 180 feet away - and the jury agreed, assigning most of the blame to New York City Transit.

A spokesman for New York City Transit said lawyers are reviewing the verdict.
