A man was seriously injured Friday morning after being struck by a Flushing-bound 7 train in Woodside, authorities said.

The individual — who appears to have been wearing headphones – was leaning over the platform edge at the subway station on 61st Street when an arriving train hit him at about 8:40 a.m., according to the MTA.

He suffered head injuries and was taken to Elmhurst Hospital in serious but stable condition, the FDNY said.

Due to the incident, express 7 train service was suspended in both directions but resumed by 9:48 a.m.

The MTA said it urges straphangers to be aware of and pay attention to their surroundings, listen to announcements, and stay behind the yellow strip on the edge of the platform.
