GREENWICH, Conn. (AP) — A 21-year-old man found burning on top of a New York City-bound commuter train in Connecticut has died.
Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokesman Aaron Donovan says Brian McClellen, who was from Ohio but currently living in New York, died at Westchester Medical Center in New York.
He was taken there after workers found him aflame on Sunday morning on top of a Metro-North train, just after it lost power in Greenwich. The train was being powered by overhead electrical wires.
Donovan says McClellen suffered burns over about 85 percent of his body.
He says the railroad is trying to determine how McClellen got on top of the train and why.
McClellen’s Facebook page describes him as an actor and model.
