Insane Video Of Man Hijacking A Subway With A Screwdriver
Wow. A man named Richard Arrocho, screaming that someone was trying to kill him, climbed into the side window of the 5 train in New York and threatened to stab the conductor with a screwdriver. After wrestling with the conductor, Arrocho briefly commandeered the train. The conductor and some concerned passengers at first tried to lock Arrocho in the cabin, but then realizing they didn't want a crazy person potentially hurtling them to their doom, talked him out of the control room. Thankfully no one was hurt and Arrocho is in custody. Also thankfully, someone got all of this on video.

The woman has since been identified as 21-year-old Fatoumata Binta Amina Diallo, a native of Ghana who was studying in Manhattan to become a doctor. Eyewitnesses say she briefly came to on the tracks and desperately tried to crawl to safety. Onlookers were horrified as she was cut in half by the train.
