CTA Red Line trains bypassed the 63rd Street station for over an hour Tuesday afternoon after a dead person was found on a train.

A 29-year-old man was found dead on a train about 2 p.m. at the South Side station, according to Chicago police officials. He was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

He was identified as Clarence McNealy III of Country Club Hills, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

It was unclear when or how he died, police said.

An autopsy determining the cause of death has not yet been released.

Southbound Red Line trains bypassed the station for a “sick customer” until about 3:40 p.m., according to an alert from the Chicago Transit Authority.

A CTA spokesperson was unable to provide additional details.
