NEW YORK (AP) - Police say a 40-year-old man went into cardiac arrest and died after officers found him in need of medical attention on a New York City subway train.

The New York Police Department says 40-year-old Andre Nimmons, of Queens, was pronounced dead at a hospital after going into cardiac arrest in an ambulance Friday morning.

Police say officers had helped Nimmons off of a Manhattan-bound train at the Hoyt-Schermerhorn station in Brooklyn around 8:30 a.m. Friday. They say he appeared to need medical attention and called an ambulance.

Police say Nimmons was restrained in an EMS chair using fabric fastener straps after flailing his arms.

They say an investigation is ongoing and the city medical examiner’s office will determine his cause of death.
