Witnesses saw a person jump onto the tracks of the Manhattan-bound side at around 11:30 a.m., a spokesperson for the NYPD said. The spokesperson confirmed that the person was stuck under the train.
By 12:11 P.M., the MTA said L trains are bypassing the Bedford Avenue station in both directions due to NYPD activity at the station.
