Story & photos by  Ex Captain Steven Grogan  

On Labor Day, Sept. 6th, 2010, at about 6:10 PM, the Lynbrook Fire Department, under the command of Chief Raymond Burke, responded to the area along the LIRR tracks on Sunrise Highway between Ocean and Rocklyn Avenues after a train conductor operating a westbound train to Penn Station reported that he may have possibly struck a person on the tracks.  The train immediately stopped just before the Rocklyn Ave. overpass.  The Lynbrook Fire Department's Emergency Medical Company's unit 425-A first responded as did Rescue, Hook, Ladder, and Bucket Company's unit 427, as the bucket was needed to move the medical technicians and  firefighters up to the train and over the overgrown embankment.   Firefighters then searched around and under the train for the possible victim after the power was turned off.  Also searching the area and the embankment were members of the Lynbrook police, Rockville Centre police and the MTA police.  After searching for over an hour no evidence was found that anyone was struck by the train.  The power was turned back on the train continued on its trip.
