Viral TikTok Shows Woman Using Lock To Avoid NYC Subway Shovers

“It ain’t gonna happen to me,” a TikToker says about being shoved onto subway tracks as she locks herself to a pole with a bike chain.

A viral TikTok is showing viewers how to save themselves from being shoved onto the subway.

TikTok user Wanda Vela posted a video this week showing her locking herself to a subway platform pole with a bike chain.

“It ain’t gonna happen to me,” she said on the video, which garnered 224,000 “likes” as of Wednesday afternoon.

Recent subway shoving incidents — such as this unprovoked attack — have stoked fears among some straphangers that MTA stations are unsafe

Crime in subways actually went down in October, according to MTA officials.
