Image A Brooklyn woman who climbed onto the subway tracks to retrieve her dropped purse was hit by a train and lost both of her legs below the knee, authorities said Monday.

The accident happened just after 1 a.m. Saturday, when the 25-year-old woman climbed onto the No. 6 train’s roadbed at the E. 28th St. station in Midtown as a southbound train approached, police sources said.

The train’s operator saw the Carroll Gardens resident climbing back onto the platform and pulled the emergency brake — but not in time to avoid hitting her.

Medics took her to Bellevue Hospital. Sources said the impact severed both of her legs below the knees.
