A man was struck and killed by a 7 train at the Queensboro Plaza subway station Sunday night, MTA officials and the police said.

The 30-old-victim fell in front of a Manhattan-bound 7 train at around 10:52 p.m. as it pulled into the station, police said.

The subway driver saw the man fall and immediately applied the emergency breaks but the train hit victim, the MTA said.

Emergency Medical Services pronounced the man dead at the scene, police said.

Power was turned off to allow first responders onto the scene and full 7 line service was suspended until 12:50 a.m., the MTA said.

A preliminary investigation by police suggests the man staggered before falling onto the tracks.

Police do not suspect criminality and were unable to provide any further information. The man’s identity has not been released.
