The MTA has posted a service alert regarding 4 train service in the Bronx. Here is the service alert:

For service to bypassed stations, customers are advised to take b and d train service making nearby station stops along Grand Concourse.

Please expect delays in service on the 4 trains at this time.

The service alert is due to a 12-9 (person under train) at the Fordham Road station. The jumper who committed suicide was a female student. The power is in the process of being restored. Unfortunately this is the second 12-9 incident involving the 4 line. Exactly one week ago, a person committed suicide by jumping in front of a 4 train at the 170th Street station during the morning rush hour. I wish my best for the crew involved in this incident, especially the train operator.
