Declared dead at the scene.
A Manhattan trader was killed Tuesday morning by a speeding Long Island Rail Road commuter train, marking at least the seventh suicide of a financial professional this year.
The New York Post reports that Edmund (Eddie) Reilly, 47, a trader at Midtown’s Vertical Group, jumped in front of an LIRR train at 6 a.m. near the Syosset train station.
He was declared dead at the scene.
'Eddie was a great guy', Rob Schaffer, a Managing Director at Vertical, told The Post in an email. 'We are very upset and he will be deeply missed'.
The divorced father of three had rented a house around the corner from his ex-wife, Michelle Reilly, in East Norwich, NY.
