UPDATE: A 50-year-old Hillsdale man died at Hackensack University Medical Center tonight after losing his arm when he was struck by a train that was later stopped in Emerson, an NJ Transit spokesperson told CLIFFVIEW PILOT.
The victim apparently tried to board the train while it was moving and was injured around 4:20 p.m., multiple sources said.
“The crew didn’t even realize what happened,” an official source with direct knowledge of the incident told CLIFFVIEW PILOT. “The train made two others stops.”
AirMed One landed at the George White School in Hillsdale and collected the victim, who another source said was still breathing when he was taken to the hospital.
