A homeless man who died in hospital after he was hit by a train while walking on the tracks at Mufford Crescent near Glover Road. Tuesday night in Langley has been identified as a 42-year-old from Langley.

CPR was performed and the patient was rushed to hospital in grave condition where he succumbed to his injuries early Wednesday morning.
