FILE - In this Jan. 22, 2013 file photo, a police officer and medical examiner personnel carry a body out of the Times Square subway station in New York after witnesses told police that the man who died jumped into the path of an oncoming train. It's a largely overlooked but gory reality of the New York City subway system: When someone kills themselves by jumping in front of a train, police need to find a place to put the mutilated body until a medical examiner truck arrives. Sometimes, transit workers say, that place is their break room or bathrooms, and some say they have been traumatized by unexpectedly coming upon a stowed body.(AP Photo/Seth Wenig, FIle)
