Suicide at Bay Fair BART Monday Night

Man stepped onto track in path of oncoming train.

BART service was disrupted for more than two hours Monday night after an apparent suicide at the Bay Fair station, BART officials said.

At 9:20 p.m. a man on the platform stepped in front of a Daly City-bound train moving through the station, BART police Lt. Andy Alkire said.

Initially, trains were running through the station but not stopping while emergency officials responded to the incident, a BART dispatcher said.

After about 30 minutes, passengers were allowed to get off the trains at Bay Fair but not board there, BART officials said.

Trains began running normally around midnight, officials said. No information has been released about the victim.

And please, if information is released about the victim, let's not share it unless it's otherwise newsworthy (e.g. the victim was a public figure, or the reason for the suicide was of public interest). Let his/her family grieve in piece without prying eyes, including my own. Thanks!.
