Medical Examiner’s Office identifies Kent man who jumped from window; woman hit by train

The names of the man who died after jumping from an apartment window and the woman hit by a train in Kent were released on Friday by the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Dany Madrid-Jimenez, 40, died on Sunday just hours after jumping from a third-story window at an apartment complex in the 2100 block of South 272nd Street. The cause and manner of death for Madrid-Jimenez are pending, according to a Medical Examiner’s office spokeswoman.

Kent Police were dispatched at about 1 a.m. Sunday to a domestic dispute. Relatives stated the man was intoxicated and acting strangely. Prior to the officers arriving, the man jumped from the third-story window. He then entered a nearby vacant apartment where officers found him.

The officers arrested the man without incident. However, shortly after being arrested, the man exhibited medical complications and medics who were on scene tended to him. Paramedics then transported the man to a local hospital for further treatment. The man died later in the morning at the hospital.

Woman hit by train

Wing-San Wan-Ma, 63, died Sunday after getting hit by a BNSF Railway freight train earlier in the morning near the Sounder Station platform. Her cause and manner of death are pending, according to the Medical Examiner’s Office.

BNSF had no reports initially from train crews about striking anyone, a BNSF spokesman said. But investigators later determined the woman had been hit by a train.

The train had 110 cars and both the train conductor and engineer did not see any pedestrians on the platform when they passed, according to King County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Jason Houck.

“It appears she walked into one of the last cars going by,” Houck said in an email. “No evidence was found on the train.”

Detectives are still investigating the incident, Houck said.
