Power cut on Orange Line as rescuers get person off tracks at Wellington

Happened shortly after 5:50 p.m., based on the tweets from people in suddenly sweltering cars sitting on tracks just outside the station. Rescuers were able to get him safely off the tracks in just a few minutes.

"Well/at least a/c back on," Frank Conte reported at 5:57. Andrew Choy praised the driver on his train for keeping riders up to date: "Packed train and no air had potential for freak-outs."
