A man jumped to his death Monday morning from the platform of a Manhattan-bound A train at the Howard Beach-JFK Airport station, it was reported.

Police and EMS units received a call about the incident at 8:19 a.m., according to officials, and they responded to the scene shortly thereafter. Service was suspended from Rockaway Boulevard to Beach 90th Street until 10:46 a.m. Free shuttle buses were provided during that time.

The man has not been identified and the investigation is still ongoing.

Later, the MTA suspended A train service from Euclid Avenue and Ozone Park-Lefferts Boulevard in both directions due to switch problems. Service between Euclid Avenue and Broad Channel was also suspended in both directions.
