The MTA says a person was struck and killed Friday by a 5 train as it pulled into a Manhattan subway station.

According to the MTA, the person fell from the platform to the track at approximately 4:15 p.m. Friday and was struck by an uptown 5 train as it pulled into the 59th Street station.

All 4, 5 and 6 trains were briefly running on the local track in both directions from Grand Central to 125th Street, but the MTA says subway service has since returned to normal.

The identity of the deceased person has not yet been released.
