New Yorkers are all too familiar with bizarre encounters aboard the city’s subway system. But a dead shark?
Update from the MTA:
Around 12:30 am last night, the conductor aboard a Ditmars-bound N train at Queensboro Plaza reported that there was a shark aboard the train in car #8994. The conductor isolated the car and the train proceeded to Ditmars Boulevard terminal. Upon arrival at Ditmars Boulevard, a Train Service Supervisor reported the shark was dead and he placed it in a garbage bag and disposed of it in the trash. The Road Car Inspector on duty at Ditmars Blvd. normalized the car and returned the train to customer service.
Straphangers riding a Queens-bound N train discovered just that early Wednesday morning, according to Gothamist.
