The person was caught under a outbound train shortly before 5:30 p.m., according to MBTA spokeswoman Kelly Smith. The individual, who was not identified, was conscious when removed from the tracks and taken to Brigham and Women’s Hospital. It was not clear how the person got onto the tracks, Smith said.
