A 19-year-old high school dropout, Jasmal White, was run over, electrocuted and killed by a CTA Red Line train Saturday afternoon near Guaranteed Rate Field, authorities said.
Crews were called about 1:30 p.m. to the 35th Street Red Line station for reports of a person struck by a train, according to Chicago Fire Department Cmdr. Walter Schroeder.
Police said they believe Mr. White, while riding a bike on the platform, fell onto the tracks directly in front of a train as it was pulling into the station. He was pronounced dead at the scene and crews were still gathering body parts as of 7:00 P.M. Area Central detectives were conducting a death investigation.
