The body of a man was discovered on the subway tracks Wednesday night at the Hollywood and Vine station of the Metro Red Line, authorities said.
The body was discovered about 7:30 p.m., said David Ortiz, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department.
The man appeared to have walked off the platform and fallen onto the tracks but did not touch the subway's electric rail, according to spokeswoman Gale Anderson with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. The man also was not struck by a train, Anderson said. Authorities are still trying to determine why he fell off the platform.
