NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) -- Two people were killed by trains in separate Manhattan incidents early Sunday morning.

Around 6:30 a.m., 1010 WINS' Glenn Shuck saw MTA police and the city medical examiner's office retrieve a body at 72nd Street and Park Avenue. The officials entered the tracks through a covered sidewalk opening and climbed down a flight of stairs to reach the victim, Schuck reported.

After initially denying that anything had happened, the MTA confirmed someone had been killed on the northbound Metro-North tracks near 67th Street around 4 a.m.

Spokesman Sal Arena said the man was not supposed to be in the tunnel. No identification has been released.

The body of another man was found under a Q subway train at the Prince Street station around 3 a.m. Sunday. The man was discovered by the train's operator, who had gotten out to find out what was keeping the train from moving.
