NEW YORK — A video posted on YouTube on Tuesday shows a giant fairy-tale falling from a roof onto a subway car.
The video shows an elevator in the Bronx station of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) falling onto a car at a busy intersection in Manhattan around 11:15 p.m. on April 16, according to the MTA.
The elevator then slides into a tunnel, and a train runs along the tracks, according the MTA’s website.
The video shows a man holding up the elevator, which was dangling off the roof of the subway car at the time of the accident.
“This is an extremely rare occurrence, but it happens very often,” MTA spokesman John Donovan told NBC News.
The MTA said it is investigating the incident.
The incident comes on the heels of a series of deadly subway accidents, including the 2014 death of a passenger on a train in the Manhattan borough of Brooklyn, where the video was filmed.
A video of the collapse on April 18, 2017, also showed a passenger’s body falling from the roof.
