Woman killed by subway train on New Year's Day had visited city for Phish concert

The beautiful 28-year-old woman who died on the tracks beneath the wheels of a No. 2 train on New Year’s Day had come to Manhattan for a Phish concert the night before— and then disappeared on her fiancé.
Dana Ferrari, a medical assistant from Pennsylvania, went to Madison Square Garden with her beau, Blake Pupo, and his brother, family members said yesterday.
But Pupo went to the restroom during the concert, and when he returned, Dana — who died nearby at the 34th Street station — was nowhere to be found, her sister, Leslie Ferrari, 22, of Andover, NJ, told The Post.

Dana Ferrari: Killed on New Year's Eve
“He’s a mess,” Leslie, who worked alongside her sister in a pediatrician’s office in Andover, said of the heartbroken Pupo.
The two were supposed to spend the night at the Marriott, Leslie said
Then she added, “We’d like to have more answers. How did she get into the train station?”
“Dana definitely wasn’t a drinker,” she added.
She recalled her sister’s last words to her — written at the stroke of midnight — as “happy new year! i love you.”
Dana was struck by a northbound train at 5:20 a.m. Tuesday.
Witnesses said she’d appeared intoxicated, staggering around before walking down some service stairs at the end of the platform — and into the mouth of the subway tunnel.
She was lying on the track bed, and by the time the motorman had spotted her, it was too late to do anything, a law-enforcement source said.
She had no identification on her, only a set of keys with a CVS card registered to Pupo, which is what investigators used to initially identify her.
Leslie said there had been no indication that anything was bothering her sister or that there was any reason for her to take her own life.
Dana grew up in Newton, NJ, and had been engaged to Pupo since 2009, according to her Facebook page.
The couple lived in Dingmans Ferry, Pa., with their dog, and often went to concerts, with his Facebook page documenting many such events, including others featuring Phish.
In Pupo’s profile photo, Dana can be seen in the background, hands in the air, holding a drink.
Leslie said the medical examiner told the family that the death appeared to be accidental and that Dana had fallen.
“It was a freak accident,” Leslie said. “She fell onto the tracks.”
But Ellen Borakove, a spokeswoman for the city Medical Examiner’s Office, said the cause of death was still listed as “pending further study.”
“We are doing testing and further investigation,” including toxicology tests, she said.

sheesh. how fucked up does someone need to be to do that. pretty? I'd say.

But I still got questions...

5:20 am is how long after the Phish show ended? 3, 4? Plus she "supposedly dissappeared during the show. Says her fiance.
Her fiance of many years.
And his brother.

Where were these guys all this time? She was nearby it sounds like.

I don't know. Could be nothing, Could all be on the up and up and just a tragic example of someone not partying responsibly.

Could be.

I just have to wonder, if hoagies and my post were so disturbing and classless to you, you must be really pissed off at the Westboro Baptist Church.

What action have you taken to protest their level of class at funerals?

so, then by your logic here, you think people who judge the actions of the Westboro Baptist Church are classless?

and by the same logic, you don't feel people should take action against the WBC when they picket funerals.

I highly doubt the girl was roofied. went to phish and biscuits show. Partied way to much, possibly ingested something bad. Not watched out for by friends. According to PT bisco was kicked out of biscuits show for smoking. Gets killed. friends take no responsibility for not properly looking out for friends. Look out for your friends. It's not that fucking hard!

People witnessed her walking down steps and into the train tunnel, but no one tried to stop her. Weird city.

Yeah but honestly I can understand a bunch of fucked up strangers not helping on new years eve. I can tell you the only way I would lose one of my friends at a show is if they passed out in the bathroom. It's not that fucking hard to keep track of people.

Hoagie,

If it was your girlfriend killed on NYE, how would you feel about people mocking her death with lyrics from a Phish song?

It's not funny. It's fucking classless, immature and stupid.

do you think ppl who saw her walking down there were confused or scared? i can see myself being confused but even if i did realize what she was doing i might be scared if she wasnt in her right mind to approach her....? i wonder what those who actually saw her thought.
