Fatal Teen Jump Delays Metro-North in Evening Rush

Metro-North service on the Harlem and New Haven lines were experiencing delays of up to an hour during the evening rush Monday after a teenage boy jumped in front of a train in the area of Botanical Gardens, officials say.

The boy, identified by law enforcement officials as a student enrolled at nearby Fordham Prep, was killed, and police activity at the station lasted into the evening hours. Trains were bypassing all stations in the Bronx. 
Metro-North lines were delayed in both directions. Commuters at Grand Central 

Terminal were reporting huge crowds and back-ups inside the station. 

The New York City Transit subway system is cross-honoring Metro-North tickets.
Riders should listen for announcements at their stations, the MTA says. 

A message was left with Fordham Prep. Another student at the school fatally jumped in front of a Metro-North train in Phillipse Manor in Westchester two weeks ago.

The MTA says it will have additional police officers on station platforms near Fordham Prep Tuesday.
