Metro-North riders claim they were delayed more than two hours after a passenger climbed atop a train and got electrocuted

A man is dead after climbing on top of a moving Metro-North train and coming into contact with electrical wires.

The train left the stadium station just before 11 p.m. ET, and Vigeant and his brother tried to climb from inside between Larchmont and Mamaroneck, N.Y., about a half-hour later when the incident happened. A passenger tells News 12 that Vigeant was with his brother. "A woman who said she was a nurse went running past me".

The train stopped running for almost three hours as passengers waited without electricity until Mamaroneck police cleared the scene.

Pellicci said a few moments later, there was a "thud and a spark of light", and he saw the man's body fall between cars towards the rear of the train. Train officials were able to safely bring down Vigeant's brother, but Michael touched a catenary wire and was electrocuted, MTA officials say, the New York Post reports. As the train was running from Larchmont to Mamaroneck about half an hour later, a pair of brothers tried to climb from inside a auto onto the roof.

MTA police are investigating the incident.

The train finally pulled into its final stop in New Haven at about 3:20 a.m. on Thursday. Those passengers also complained about the hot, humid conditions on the train, with some people asking MTA to open the doors to allow fresh air in.
