A New York City bank robber ended up in a hospital after he fell from an elevated subway platform while escaping police officers.
According to the New York Post, police officers responded to a call around 12:20 p.m. after a man passed a note telling a bank teller to hand him money at the Santander Bank in Astoria, Queens. The male suspect ran off with an undisclosed amount of money and fled to a nearby N/W subway station to evade officers. When he was spotted by officers, the suspect ran to the end of the platform and climbed down a support pole but lost his grip and fell to the sidewalk.
Authorities say he sustained head injuries and was transported to the NYC Health and Hospitals in Elmhurst. He is currently in critical condition.
