Authorities are investigating after the body of a man was discovered on top of a SEPTA train Monday afternoon.

Police say the discovery was made at the Girard Station around noon.

A SEPTA spokesperson says they are trying to figure out how the man got up there in the first place and are reviewing surveillance.

Authorities say the man's death may be a case of a thrill-seeking stunt gone wrong.
