A man was shoved onto the subway tracks in a random attack in a lower Manhattan subway station Sunday morning, police and sources said.

The 62-year-old victim was standing on the platform at the Fulton St. station when he was pushed from behind and fell to the roadbed about 11:30 a.m., cops said.

The operator of a southbound C train was able to pull the brake, but not before making contact with the victim.

Medics found the man conscious and alert and rushed him to New York-Presbyterian Hospital Downtown with a laceration to the right leg, police and sources said.

The attacker fled the station and was being sought.

The terrifying incident comes a little over a week after Michelle Go, 40, was pushed to her death at a Times Square subway station last Saturday.

The NYPD counted 461 subway assaults across the city last year — 102 more than in 2020.

Last year marked the highest number of assaults in the city subway system since 1997, when police counted 501 attacks.
