CAMBRIDGE (CBS) — A person was hit and killed by a Red Line train at Kendall Station Monday morning.

It happened at about 11:30 a.m. at the station on Main Street in Cambridge, just north of the Longfellow Bridge.

The entire downtown portion of the Red Line was shut down – from Broadway to Harvard.

Shuttle buses took passengers between those stations in both directions, and MBTA officials urged everyone to avoid the area.

    Where is the news about this? No details anywhere, just info from the MBTA post. Was it a suicide? Was the guy electrocuted or hit by the train? Why is there no news on this anywhere? Not a big deal to die on the metro?

    nobody…..Maybe the person that died deserves some consideration.I was involved in a simular situation at Park Street over 40 years ago. It is something that never leaves you. I can never go to Park Street without saying a Prayer for this person.(I’m not a Regigious person)

    If they haven’t been able to identify the body, they can’t notify the next of kin. They shouldn’t release any info until the next of kin are notified.

    Usually not much mentioned, as it encourages others (believe it or not, true.

    Update: “Officials yesterday identified the man struck and killed by a Red Line train Monday morning at the MBTA’s Kendall Square Station as Dr. Omar Khalidi, a librarian for the Aga Khan Program in the MIT Libraries from 1983 until last month.”
