NORTH HOLLYWOOD – An investigation is under way into the death of a 54-year-old man who was struck by a Metro Red Line train at the North Hollywood Station.

The man, whose name and hometown have not been released, was listed in grave condition when he arrived at a hospital following the accident, which was reported at 1:43 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 5, at the station at 5350 Lankershim Boulevard, authorities said.

He was pronounced dead just after 3 p.m. Tuesday, said Lt. Marc Lucio of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Transit Services Bureau.

The man was found under a train and firefighters cut power to the Red Line's electrified third rail before using specialized equipment to get him out, according to Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department. One firefighter suffered a minor head cut during the rescue, he said.

The man jumped in front of an oncoming train, according to a broadcast report.

Authorities set up bus service between the Universal and North Hollywood stations while the rescue was going on. Regular train service resumed shortly after 4 p.m. Tuesday.

The incident is under investigation, Lucio said.

In addition, individuals with increased susceptibility to melanoma may have cancer arise de novo, without a precursor lesion such as a nevus.
