A man died Wednesday after he fell from a stairway at a Chicago Transit Authority train station and plunged to the street below, police said.

CTA officials said video from an internal reviewed showed the man climbed over a stair railing and fell from an outer ledge. Police said he fell about 30 feet Tuesday from a Blue Line platform in the Logan Square neighborhood.

He was taken in critical condition to Advocate Illinois Masonic Hospital, where he was pronounced dead about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, some four hours after his fall, said the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Officials said the man was possibly intoxicated at the time of his fatal fall on the city's northwest side.
