Body reportedly under train at Balboa BART


A report of a person under a train has closed the Balboa Park BART station in San Francisco this afternoon, disrupting service for many trains in the system, transit agency officials said.

The station located at 401 Geneva Ave. was closed shortly before 12:30 p.m. due to a report of a person under an eastbound train, BART spokesman Jim Allison said.

UPDATE 4:23 p.m.
Person under BART train reportedly dies.

BART police are on scene investigating the incident, he said.

Allison did not have an immediate update on the person’s condition this afternoon. The closure is impacting trains traveling in the San Francisco International Airport, Millbrae and East Bay directions, according to BART officials.

Trains on the Dublin/Pleasanton line heading to Daly City are turning back at 24th Street Mission station, Allison said.

Pittsburg/Bay Point trains heading to the San Francisco International Airport are making all stops, with the exception of the Balboa Park station, but are experiencing a 10- to 20- minute delay, Allison said.

Eastbound trains are delayed by about 10 to 20 minutes due to trains single-tracking at Balboa Park, he said.
