A seven-hour train ride for one passenger in the San Francisco Bay Area last week ended with him on the train — and dead.
Passengers aboard a train headed toward San Jose did not notice that a man died during the trip, and he was only discovered several hours later at the end of the line on Friday, authorities with Bay Area Rapid Transit agency said.
The unidentified man boarded a BART train at Bay Fair Station in San Leandro at 6:48 p.m. Thursday, according to BART spokesperson James Allison. The man continued to move about the train up until 8:22 p.m. and then he moved out of view from a surveillance camera, Allison said.
Other passengers moved about the train and past the area where the man was last seen on camera but did not seem to react to anything unusual, Allison said. The man was found at 2:20 a.m. at the end of the train line during the routine check by BART car cleaners and police before the train cars are taken out of service.
