A Moscow Metro spokesperson said: “On duty police officers on the platform called for medical assistance and dealt with the injured man.”
According to local media, the unnamed victim jumped in front of an oncoming tube and flew through the window, ending up in agony on the cab floor.

At the moment, the police are speaking with the man’s family while he remains under psychiatric evaluation.
A police spokesperson said: “The incident is under investigation. At the moment, he has not shown any signs of mental illness and family members did not notice anything unusual about his behaviour leading up to the incident.
“The man’s friends also said that they were unaware of any issues, although it is possible he was hiding something from loved ones.”
