An 11-year-old boy was found dead on the SEPTA tracks at the Wayne Junction car yard Sunday morning.
SEPTA spokeswoman Jerri Williams said the boy's body was found about 8:30 a.m. by a SEPTA employee. The yard is usually used to store Regional Rail cars that are not in use, she said.
"It appears that he was electrocuted," Williams said. "When that happened and how that occurred are still being investigated now."
SEPTA investigators and Philadelphia police are investigating, Williams said.
