He suffered severe leg injuries and was taken to a hospital, where he died, Rose said.
According to the Chron, witnesses said the man, who was in a wheelchair, accidentally fell in front of the train, but SF Fire Department spokesperson Mindy Talmadge said “How they got (on the tracks), we don’t know.”
