    QUEENS, New York (WABC) — For the second time in as many weeks, a 14-year-old boy has died after subway surfing in New York City.

    The most recent incident happened just before 5:30 p.m. on Thursday at Queens Boulevard and 33rd Street in Queens.

    The 14-year-old boy fell off a subway car and onto the tracks. He did not fall onto the street.

    The victim was taken to Cohen Children’s Medical Center in critical condition. He was pronounced dead a few hours later.

    It comes a week after another 14-year-old was killed while subway surfing in Brooklyn.

    Fourteen-year-olds Windinson Garcia and Brian Crespo got on top of a Manhattan-bound L train at the Broadway Junction stop on June 22 and were knocked off when the train entered the tunnel before reaching the Bushwick-Aberdeen Ave stop.

    Crespo was killed while his friend Garcia was badly injured.
