I was on an uptown C train Sunday afternoon and we were stopped midway into 96th St because of a 12-9 (I believe that's what I overheard the conductor say). Everyone had to get off the train at the front car and there were police in the station when we passed back through on the uptown A train. There's been no mention of this in any of the NY papers (Times, Post, Daily News). Does anyone have more information on what happened?

It is very rare that a 12-9 (Man Under) the radio code used to report it will make the papers. There are about a 90 to 100 a year.

Train crew will get 3 days off if it is a fatality.
Here are all the radio codes, 12-4 is not used so it will not be confused with 10-4.

NYCTA Radio Codes

Code Description
12 – 1 EMERGENCY – CLEAR THE AIR
12 – 2 FIRE OR SMOKE (ON TRAIN – ROADBED)
12 – 3 FLOOD OR SERIOUS WATER CONDITION
12 – 5 STALLED TRAIN (POWER – TRAIN)
12 – 6 DERAILMENT
12 – 7 REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE (POLICE – AMBULANCE)
12 – 8 ARMED PASSENGER (TRAIN – ROADBED)
12 – 9 PASSENGER UNDER TRAIN
12 – 10 UNAUTHORIZED PERSONEL ON TRACK – CATWALK
12 – 11 SERIOUS VANDALISM
12 – 12 DISORDERLY PASSENGERS

SAMPLE PROCEDURE: “COMMAND CENTER 12-1″
(PAUSE) “COMMAND CENTER THIS IS PELHAM 4:26 AT
125TH STREET REPORTING A 12 – 2 ON TRAIN ETC.”
