Malaysia Goodson, a 22-year-old Black woman, died after falling down the subway steps at the Midtown’s 7th Avenue station while trying to carry her 1-year-old daughter Rhylee in a stroller. She had apparently been also carrying groceries.
Goodson was found “unconscious and unresponsive” at the bottom of the steps. The baby survived with minor injuries.
“It may have been a medical episode,” an NYPD spokesperson told PEOPLE. “There’s no indication that the fall may have caused her death. But we can’t know for sure until the [medical examiner] lets us know.”
