  1. I was there, I made a 911 call. That man wore a red jacket with white strips and blue jeans. He jumped with his arms up from the yellow line surface on to those train tracks while the train was coming aboard. He didnt make a sound as he went down. I think He committed suicide. no one push them no one was around him the station was pretty calm. he didn't fall there were NO signs of him struggling He didn't scream or yell anything at all. That's partically why I think there werent that many witnesses.
