THE BRONX - Staff and students at Fordham Preparatory School are mourning the loss of a student who jumped to his death in front of a Metro-North train in the Bronx, according to police. 

Police say the 16-year-old boy, who went to the all-boys school, jumped in front of a train at the Botanical Garden's station around 3:30 p.m. just a few blocks from the school yesterday. 

The incident delayed trains on the Harlem, Hudson and New Haven lines for hours.

School officials at Fordham held a staff meeting Tuesday morning, and the school had a delayed start for students. 

The high school also brought in grievance counselors to help students. 

The student’s train-related death is the second one by a Fordham student in recent weeks. 

On Jan. 18, Owen Kelly, a sophomore at Fordham Prep was killed when jumping in front of a Metro-North train in Sleepy Hollow.
