Woman rescued after falling off Davis Square T platform

In a tense incident this morning at the Red Line’s Davis Square Station, a woman stepped off the platform into the train pit but was swiftly rescued by bystanders.

Dramatic video released by the MBTA shows the woman falling in the pit and lying on the tracks at about 8:41 a.m. A lone man appears not to see her — but looks around as if he hears something — as he walks down the empty platform.
