The man was on a Manhattan-bound train at about 5:20 a.m. when he fell and was hit near the 63rd Drive-Rego Park station, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene, the FDNY said. His age and identity were not immediately released. As a result, E, F, M and R train service was suspended or altered in Queens for several hours. Regular service resumed at about 7:30 a.m., but warned of residual delays. Also on Tuesday, a 17-year-old girl was fatally struck by a train at the Simpson Street station in the Bronx at about 8 a.m., police said. Laura Janneh, of the Bronx, died after coming in contact with the third rail, according to the MTA. While it appears that Janneh had jumped down onto the tracks, an NYPD spokesman added that it was unclear what the motive was. The investigation is ongoing, the spokesman added. Following that incident, 2 and 5 trains were suspended in the Bronx, but normal service was restored by around 9 a.m., the MTA said.
