WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - A man from Miami, who jumped off a moving commuter train to save his cell phone, is dead.

The Palm Beach Post is reporting St. Mary's Medical Center said 26-year-old Eddie Diaz was taken off life support Friday.

Diaz's family is now donating his organs.

Police say Diaz left his phone on a bench and got on the train.

When he realized he had forgotten his phone, Diaz broke the glass of the emergency safety mechanism, pulled the emergency stop lever and jumped off the front passenger door.

Apparently Diaz slipped and fell when he tried to land on the platform. He was immediately taken to the hospital with critical injuries.
