  1. What the heck is a train person incident? That doesn’t make any sense in the English language.

  2. It would’ve been helpful to provide this information to those of us standing at the other stations at the time. I could’ve taken the Green Line or tried another route. Instead we were left waiting at the Willowbrook station without ANY communication.

  3. well the train hit someone & why they pretend it was something else? We always find out in the days after. My friend was on the train she told us and she saw the body under the train, we told her to go home.
