Second suicide at a BART station within a week.

SAN FRANCISCO -- A report of a person under a train has closed the Balboa Park BART station in San Francisco this afternoon, disrupting service for many trains in the system, transit agency officials said.

The station located at 401 Geneva Ave. was closed shortly before 12:30 p.m. due to a report of a person under an eastbound train, BART spokesman Jim Allison said.

BART police are on scene investigating the incident, he said.

Allison did not have an immediate update on the person's condition this afternoon.

The closure is impacting trains traveling in the San Francisco International Airport, Millbrae and East Bay directions, according to BART officials.

1. It's a little soon to call it a suicide. Hopefully they're still alive.

 

I'd think this would be one of the most painful and traumatizing ways to die, it amazes me that people choose it.

4. I can't imagine what that must feel like. If I did that for a living I'd think of it every day.
