Reality TV fans and members of the fitness community are mourning the loss of Greg Plitt, who died Saturday. The fitness model and actor was pronounced dead on the scene after being struck by a Metrolink train in Burbank, Calif. He was 37.
Plitt is best known for appearing on Bravo’s reality series Work Out. His episode on Bravo’s new series Friends to Lovers is a few weeks away.
Plitt “was as nice as he was beautiful,” tweeted Andy Cohen. “We couldn’t take our eyes off Greg Plitt after we cast him on Work Out. … (He) seemed invincible, like Superman,” wrote the Bravo producer.
Sgt. Chris Canales of the Burbank Police Department told USA TODAY that Plitt died at approximately 4:05 p.m. local time. “For some reason, he was on the track, and he was struck by the train,” Canales said.
A train passenger told ABC7 that Plitt, who has shot workout videos on train tracks before, had a camcorder in his hand when he was hit. Burbank police told People that a camera was seized as evidence, but it’s unclear whether the camera was Plitt’s. The incident is still under investigation.
Bravo released this statement: “This is a very sad tragedy. Our thoughts and deepest sympathy are with Greg’s family and friends.”
