For the second night in a row, somebody fell on subway tracks, but this time with a happier outcome.
Boston Fireman reports a man in a wheelchair somehow wound up in the pit at JFK/UMass shortly before 10:30 p.m. Power was shut off northbound and toward both Ashmont and Braintree as fire crews got the man and his chair off the tracks.
Channel 7 tweets the man is 65 and was taken to Boston Medical Center. The incident is, as they say, under investigation.
Last night, around the same time, a man fell on the tracks at the Malden stop on the Orange Line, but he hit the third rail and died.
