GREENWICH, Conn. -- The 21-year-old man who was found on fire while attempting to ride on top of a Metro-North train in Greenwich on Sunday has died as a result of his injuries, according to multiple reports.

Metro-North crews stopped the train at the Riverside station in Greenwich to investigate why the train had lost power when they found Brian McClellen on fire atop the train .

Crews used fire extinguishers to put out the flames before he was transported to Westchester Medical Center in critical condition.

Authorities are still investigating how McClellen was able to get on top of the train, which gets its power from overhead wires, News 12 Westchester reported.

McClellen was a native of Cleveland and was reportedly an actor and model living in New York City, according to Heavy.com .

Earlier reports said he had jumped onto the top of the train after it left the Stamford train station.
