A woman in her 20s was rescued by firefighters Monday afternoon after she became trapped underneath a Red Line train at Shawmut Station in Dorchester.
Firefighters responded to the station at about 1:25 p.m., and found the woman under a train on the northbound side of the station, said MBTA spokeswoman Kelly Smith.
“She was conscious under the train, and so what we did is initiate a technical rescue with specially trained units,” said Boston Fire Department spokesman Steve MacDonald.
Firefighters worked with the MBTA to shut off power in the station before rescuing her. The woman was taken to Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Her injuries appeared serious but not life-threatening, officials said.
Transit Police are investigating how she got under the train.Jasper Craven can be reached at email@example.com. Follow him on Twitter @Jasper_Craven.
