The T forwards this video of the woman who fell onto the tracks at Broadway on Saturday afternoon, causing delays on northbound trains. According to a Transit Police report:
I interviewed a witness, who stated that prior to the incident, he observed her standing on the platform and "nodding." While "nodding", she moved closer and closer to the pit. He believed that she was going to fall into the pit and moved towards her in an attempted to grab a hold of her, but he did not get to her in time. He stated she fell into the pit, and landed with her right hip on the first rail. He then immediately entered the pit to assist her. I also spoke to two other witnesses on scene. Both stated that prior to the incident, she appeared to be stumbling around the platform. She moved closer to the yellow line, then fell into the pit.
The 29-year-old woman was conscious but "lethargic" when taken to the hospital by Boston EMS.
