Man catches fire atop moving Metro-North train

A man caught fire while riding atop a commuter train Sunday morning.



The Ohio man, 21-year-old Brian McClellan, somehow climbed on top of a Metro-North train en route to New York City before being spotted at the Greenwich train station in Connecticut.



MTA crew members acted quickly and used a fire extinguisher to put out the flames.



McClellen was taken to Westchester Medical Center as the MTA continues to investigate.
