The NYPD says an Amtrak worker was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police say the man who died was working on a transformer, and the line wasn’t powered off.

The Amtrak substation is just behind a Con Edison facility. Con Ed says the incident had nothing to do with their personnel or property.
An investigation is underway.
