Within a span of eight hours, two people died on train tracks in Massachusetts in separate incidents.

In the first incident, a man stepped in front of an outbound Red Line subway train at Dorchester’s Savin Hill Station around 11:30 p.m. Thursday.

At 7 a.m. Friday, an elderly man was struck down by a Commuter Rail train while walking on tracks in Belmont, a community just northwest of Boston.

The identities of the victims have been withheld. Officials at the Savin Hill scene would not comment.
