A Long Island teen who was celebrating his 18th birthday in Manhattan on Tuesday died after he was struck by an oncoming train at an Upper West Side subway station.

Liam Armstrong, of Nesconset, was struck by an express 2 train at the 79th Street station when he and his friends were trying to cross the tracks to get to the opposite platform, the New York Post reported.

The young men had exited an Uptown 1 train at the station because they realized they were on the wrong train and needed to head downtown. Instead of exiting the station to get to the other platform, they decided to dash across the tracks. One of the friends made it across safely, and another friend was still on the northbound side of the tracks when Armstrong was struck.

Armstrong suffered a severed leg and died from severe head trauma. He was a student at Smithtown High School East who was expected to graduate this year. His father is a detective sergeant with the Nassau County Police Department.

Poor kid. Thats why I teach my kids as soon as they can walk, no matter what, you stay off the tracks unless you look both ways and don't see or hear a train. I don't care if it's a quarter mile off, if you can see it, you stay put. On a subway, you never go on the tracks no matter what, no excuses.
