SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — In a story March 13 about a man was found dead at a downtown Salt Lake City, The Associated Press reported erroneously that for several hours crowds passed by a deceased man on a light rail platform. Officials said people reported seeing the man alive in the area for several hours and he was found dead shortly after he told a passer-by he was not feeling well.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Man found dead at Salt Lake City light rail platform

Authorities say a man was found dead at a downtown Salt Lake City light rail platform

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Authorities say a man was found dead at a downtown Salt Lake City light rail platform.

KUTV in Salt Lake City reports that police were checking on the man Saturday and found him unresponsive.

Utah Transit Authority officials believe he had been in the area for at least two hours as crowds heading to a St. Patrick's Day parade passed him by before he told somebody he wasn't feeling well.

When police arrived, he was unresponsive. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police do not suspect foul play and believe the 57-year-old man had suffered a medical issue.

His identity has not been released pending notification of family.
