Man found dead at Salt Lake City light rail platform


SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Authorities say a man was found dead at a downtown Salt Lake City light rail platform.

KUTV in Salt Lake City reports (http://bit.ly/1QOSCBx) that police were checking on the man Saturday and found him unresponsive.

Officers pronounced him dead at the scene.

Utah Transit Authority officials believe the man had been sitting at the platform for at least two hours as crowds heading to a St. Patrick’s Day parade passed him.

Police do not suspect foul play and believe the 57-year-old man had suffered a medical issue.

His identity has not been released pending notification of family.
