A 23-year-old man from Hoffman Estates died Sunday after falling from a CTA train station in Lincoln Square on the North Side.
Jaime Cardenas Jr. was found unresponsive about 2:50 a.m. under the Western Brown Line platform in the 4600 block of North Western Avenue, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.
He was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center and pronounced dead, police said.
An autopsy released Monday found he died of multiple injuries from a “fall from height,” the medical examiner’s office said. His death was ruled accidental.
Police said he may have fallen from the platform.
