A model, Brian McClellen, 21, who was discovered ablaze on top of a New York City-bound train in Connecticut has died, according to Mirror UK.
He was found by by Metro-North Railroad workers and had suffered burns to more than 85% of his body.
He was taken to hospital but could not be saved and was pronounced dead today.
Keen skateboarder Mr McClellen was discovered at about 5am yesterday after the train lost power at Riverside station in Greenwich.
It is thought he came into contact with a pantograph pulsing with hundreds of volts of electricity.
It is not yet clear why Mr McClellen, a model and actor, came to be on top of the train, although it has been suggested he may have been 'surfing'.
He was originally from Cleveland, Ohio but recently moved to New York.
Cleveland television station WOIO reported that Mr McClellen was "an avid skateboarding stuntman"
