36 year old Sean Patrick Conroy died after being beaten by four high school students on a crowded subway platform. A Transit Police officer witnessed the attack from the opposite platform and rushed to Conroy's aid and performed CPR but was unable to revive him. One of the youths, 16 year old Kinta Stanton, was apprehended. Police said the four, who were truant from school, chose Conroy at random and attacked him "for amusement".
