An 18-year-old man was pulled off a Northeast Corridor train on Thursday and died at a hospital, police said.
The man was transported to St. Vincent’s Hospital in Worcester, where he was pronounced dead, said Officer John G. Hock, a spokesman for the Worcester Police Department.
No officers were injured, Hock said.
The train was stopped at a station about a mile from the man’s home, and he had been traveling to New York City.
It was not immediately clear whether the man was related to the victim.
Police had not identified him.
The victim’s mother and his boyfriend did not immediately return messages seeking comment.
The victim was on a commuter train from Boston to Worcester when he was pulled from the car, Gulland said.
He was on the first of three commuter trains with no other passengers on board.
The man had not been to New Jersey or Massachusetts before, Golland said, and was not a resident of the city.
The incident is under investigation.
The police department did not release details of the train’s route or how the train arrived at the station.
