The platform of the Forest Avenue station on the M line.

A woman was severely injured after being struck by the M train in Ridgewood on Tuesday afternoon.

Police received a report at approximately 1:40 p.m. on July 17 that a person had been struck by the M train at the Forest Avenue station, authorities said. The MTA immediately suspended service on the line between Myrtle Avenue and Middle Village-Metropolitan Avenue.

According to a source familiar with the investigation, witnesses observed the woman jumping in front of the Manhattan-bound train as it pulled into the station; she is not believed to be part of any crime.

The 104th Precinct responded to the scene and EMS transported the woman, whose age is not yet known, to Wyckoff Heights Medical Center with life-threatening injuries, police said.

The M train has since resumed full service.

Who is this woman? I have been searching for my daughter for 4 years and she lives in Queens. She is 30 years old. She is suicidal.
