A freak accident has lead to the death of a 39-year old man Tuesday night.

CBS NY reports that the Queens man was waiting for the subway when his clothing somehow got caught by one of the passing trains. The Post says the incident happened on the Number 7 platform at Grand Central Terminal. Police say the subway pulled the man into a staircase and on to an electrical box on the tracks.

The NY Post had reported that it may have been the man's shoulder bag that got caught by the train.

It is unclear exactly how the bag got caught, or whether it was caught by the doors or some other part of the subway.

An MTA  spokeswoman had no other information about the accident, according to the NY Daily News. 

Police are currently investigating.
