A Metropolitan Opera stagehand, Joseph Ancona, was dragged to his death after running to board an uptown Manhattan subway car after work.
Joseph Ancona, 20, was caught as the doors shut on the last car of a No. 1 train at 4:56 p.m. Monday, police said.
The Met confirmed he was a member of the stage crew, working in the electric construction shop. It said: ‘Joe was respected and well-liked by his fellow crew members and the Metropolitan Opera offers our deepest condolences to his family and friends.’
He is survived by a twin sister.
