Train service has resumed after a 45-year-old man jumped from a Metro-North train.

The incident took place at approximately 11:27 a.m., Thursday, May 6, as the westbound train was traveling in Fairfield County between Westport and East Norwalk, said Aaron Donovan, spokesman for the MTA.

The individual was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Metro-North service resumed on the New Haven Line at Green's Farms, Westport, and East Norwalk at 1:18 p.m. with the train departing New Haven and the 1:03 p.m. train departing Grand Central Terminal.
