New Haven Train Station Evacuated After Person Falls on Tracks

Commuters were evacuated from New Haven's Union Station after a person fell onto the tracks Tuesday evening, according to a spokesperson for the Metro-North Railroad.

The woman fell sometime before 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, prompting authorities to de-energize the track and evacuate the station, according to Metro-North spokesperson Meredith Daniels. 

The train arriving on that track had not yet reached the station when the woman fell, Daniels said. It was held for about 30 minutes while medical personnel rescued the woman and provided treatment.

Daniels was unsure of the woman's condition Tuesday night.
