Good Samaritans helped pull a woman to safety from the Red Line tracks at South Station on Wednesday evening, a transit official said.
Investigators believe the woman suffered a medical emergency and fell into the track area at approximately 6 p.m., said MBTA Transit police Superintendent Richard Sullivan in an e-mail.
“Fellow passengers assisted her out and TPD arrived on scene,” Sullivan wrote. “She was transported to a local area hospital for treatment” for a non-life threatening injury.
“At no time was she in danger of being struck by a train,” he said.
Sullivan did not identify the woman and said officials are not releasing the report on the matter.
