The rider found herself in the head-scratching situation at around 12:45 p.m. on Tuesday at the Woodlawn station after she attempted to rush out of the car but failed to make it in time, transit sources said.
The woman — who the MTA said was not injured — can be seen in cellphone footage with her head and her black-and-white tote bag stuck between the two doors.
The one-minute clip, which has gone viral, was recorded by another straphanger who had been sitting in a subway car across the outdoor platform at the station, which is at the end of the 4 line.
An MTA worker can be seen strolling past the trapped woman in the clip, but the agency said the employee had already spoken to the woman and told her that workers would have the doors open soon.
