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.
