JACKSON HEIGHTS, Queens (WABC) -- A man has died after falling on the subway tracks during a fight in Queens.
Police say Heriberto Quintana, 48, was struck by an oncoming F train at the Roosevelt Ave-Jackson Heights subway station on Monday just before 5 p.m.
Police believe Quintana bumped into another man on the platform causing the second man's cellphone to fall onto the track bed. Then a fight erupted.
Quintana then fell onto the tracks as the F train pulled into the station. EMS eventually rescued his body from the tracks and Quintana was later pronounced dead at Elmhurst Hospital.
Authorities believe the two men were strangers before the fatal encounter.
Detectives are reviewing surveillance videos and interviewing eyewitnesses to determine if Quintana was pushed onto the tracks or if he lost his footing during the fight.
"For anyone to lose their life over a fight, what is that?" said Charlton D'Souza.
Police say they arrested a 50-year-old man at the scene, believed to be involved in the fight.
