NEW YORK (AP) _ A 25-year-old woman fell off a subway platform early Saturday and was struck and killed by an oncoming train, police said.

Witnesses reported seeing Carolyn Waldron reading a book and standing in the middle of the platform moments before she fell onto the tracks about 2 a.m., police spokesman Alan Krawitz said. She was struck by a train and declared dead at the scene, he said.

The incident is believed to be accidental. ``She was not pushed,″ Krawitz said.

A friend of the woman told police Waldron had spent the evening watching movies at a nearby apartment and was returning to her home, Krawitz said.
