A man who boarded a Metro subway train in Montgomery County on Monday morning was found dead in the same train five hours later, the transit system said.God rest his soul.
Metro said in a statement that the death was probably the result of natural causes, but no detailed information on a cause could be learned. It was also unclear when the man might have died during a period in which the train traveled much of the Red Line in both directions.
Metro did not give the man's name or any other details about him.
It was also unclear why the man was not spotted when the train was inspected before being taken out of service at one point. Metro said it would review its procedures.
