QUINCY, MASS. (WHDH) - Regular Red Line service has resumed after shuttle buses replaced rail service between Quincy Center and JFK/UMass near Wollaston Station, following an emergency response.
Officials said at approximately 6 a.m., the operator of a Red Line train reported observing two individuals on the northbound track, just north of Wollaston Station. Emergency personnel then responded to find a man and woman both deceased. They have since been identified as Klyer Granada, 20, of South Boston, and Tanairy Rodriguez, 20, of Lowell.
As MBTA Transit Police and the Norfolk County DA’s office worked to determine why the individuals were on the tracks, a preliminary investigation indicated the people had not been struck by a train, with evidence suggesting both individuals had come into contact with the third rail.
Transit Police said an adult male and female trespassed along the right of way between North Quincy and Wollaston Station and intentionally placed their bodies between the outside running rail and the third rail.
