Another death at Morse El station
Yet another person met his maker after being hit by a train at the Morse El station on the Red Line.
The details surrounding this death were not so clear-cut as the earlier case. NBC-5 TV reported first there were "body parts" found on the tracks around 1:50 a.m. on Monday. Trains were shut down till about 6:30 a.m. so officials could recover the body of a man in his early 20s.
Police at the local 24th District told me that the man was walking on the tracks when he was struck by the train.
Update, Aug. 23: I have heard from family members of the victim, who dispute the police version of events. They are trying to learn more about what happened. I wish them well. And may God rest his soul.
