A dad was fatally struck by a Bronx subway train and his 5-year-old daughter was hospitalized after they tumbled onto the tracks Monday morning, officials said.

The victims were waiting for a rush-hour Manhattan-bound No. 4 train on the platform at the Kingsbridge Road station in Kingsbridge when they accidentally fell onto the tracks about 8 a.m., sources said.

The father was struck by a train pulling into the station and died at the scene.

The girl was clipped by the train and taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries, sources said.
