Shatonia Spencer is killed by an oncoming Q train.

The feeling of invisibility in a young woman’s mind.

It was reported that Shatonia Spencer, a 23 year old native of Brooklyn was killed yesterday trying to cross the tracks at the local Prospect Ave stop in Brooklyn.

Gothamist: A station agent said she stopped to ask where to catch the trains to Manhattan, but went down the wrong stairs. Instead of going back up and crossing to the other side, she jumped onto the track bed and was attempting to scale the platform wall on the Manhattan-bound side when she was hit.

Which begs the question since when did it occur to people that crossing train tracks was never dangerous? The warning signs are clearly displayed, the news stories of abundant train deaths there and yet once again another individual’s life is robbed by a seemingly single act of erroneous decision making.

Was the girl spontaneous, impulsive or perhaps gilded by the idea that because she was young, perhaps even beautiful, the top of her class, fluent in French or whatever other skill that can necessitate overt pride? In a culture that rewards bravado and indiscretion is it possible that a young woman forgot she was mortal and bound by certain physical constraints? Climbing 4 foot platform tracks is not for the feint of heart or even those who are physically nimble.

Shatonia, I wish I was there to implore you to have taken the extra two minutes to go back and use the opposing stairwell.
