Police are conducting a death investigation after a person died on a Yellow Line train Tuesday evening.
Arlington County medics were dispatched to the Pentagon Metro station around 4:15 p.m. for a report of a person suffering a medical emergency on a Yellow Line train bound for Huntington. The individual was found unresponsive and in cardiac arrest, and was declared dead shortly after medics arrived on scene, according to Arlington County Fire Department spokesman Capt. Justin Tirelli.
Metro Transit Police and officers from the Pentagon Force Protection Agency both responded to the Metro station with medics.
The incident prompted delays and single-tracking on the Blue and Yellow lines. The single-tracking ended shortly before 5 p.m.
This was the scene this afternoon after a body was found on a Metro train at the Pentagon Station. No longer single tracking, as the train has been moved to another location where @MetroTransitPD will continue the investigation. @ARLnowDOTcom pic.twitter.com/dRvDM5AjR8
