A 51-year-old Hudson man is dead, hit by a train while fishing Thursday in the town of Stockport.

The sheriff tells NewsChannel 13 Bernard Barrett was fishing off the Columbiaville Trestle at the end of Station Road, when he heard the train whistle, tripped, and was hit and thrown into the water.

Another person fishing nearby called 911.

Barrett later died at Albany Medical Center.
