Investigators believe the man jumped, or fell, from the top of a train as it reached the McKinnon Railway Station around 10:45pm on February 25.

Witnesses alerted Protective Services Officers and police after spotting the man on top of a carriage. PSOs performed CPR until paramedics arrived.

The man was taken to Alfred hospital with life-threatening injuries and died on Friday, police said.

Police and Metro personal have warned of an increasing “subculture” of dangerous behaviour on Melbourne’s rail network.

“You get this kind of behaviour on most train networks, but it seems to be a lot worse here than I’ve seen elsewhere,” Metro chief executive Andrew Lezala told The Age at the time.

Mr Lezala said Metro and Public Transport Victoria were looking into ways to make trains harder to climb.
