A New Hampshire man died Wednesday night after he climbed atop a train traveling through Westchester County, New York, and was apparently electrocuted by overhead electrical wires, officials said. MTA Metro-North Railroad officials identified the man to Boston.com as Michael Vigeant, 24, of Hudson. Vigeant had left Yankee Stadium — where the Red Sox had just lost to the Yankees — less than an hour before the incident in Mamroneck, New York, The Journal News, a newspaper that covers that region, reports. “Our sympathies go to the family during this very difficult time,” Nancy Gamerman, a spokeswoman for Metro-North wrote in an email Friday. “The incident is under investigation and we will release further information when it is available.” A New Haven, Connecticut, bound train stopped around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday between stations in Larchmont and Mamroneck because of a power issue, according to MTA officials.

Most come up empty-handed when trying their shot at a KeyMaster game, but one man in Salem, New Hampshire, on Friday managed to evade any loss by using a method that has now captured the attention of police: having a toddler climb into the game and pull out various prizes. In a video posted by the Salem Police Department, the man — who officers are now looking to identify — is shown having a female toddler climb into the bottom portion of the game where the prizes are dropped, and then having her hand down the stolen items. The incident took place at the Mall of Rockingham Park. Along with the toddler, the man also had another child with him, “perhaps 5 to 7 years of age,” police said.

Police are encouraging anyone who recognizes the man to either call Det. Joshua Dempsey at the department, 603-890-2343, or to message them on Facebook. … [Read more...] about A man in New Hampshire used a toddler to steal prizes from a game machine, police say
