NEW YORK — Video posted to Twitter Wednesday shows a man clinging to the side of an elevated train as it travels through the city.

A masked rider looks on and someone urges the man, who is holding on to the train through a window crack, to hold on. It's not clear where the video, posted by Progressive Action, was taken.

“This is ridiculously dangerous behavior at any time, and in the middle of a pandemic it also distracts police officers from efforts to keep people safe, spread out and healthy. Tim Minton said. "That’s unacceptable.”

Ridership is down 87 percent as the outbreak continues.
