Dylan Manley was at Chinatown on the Orange Line and reports service was halted around 4:20 p.m. when a man decided to go from one platform to the other by way of the tracks:
He walked down platform on NB side, jumped onto tracks, and walked across to SB side.
The T shut power as police got the trackwalker off the tracks - which turned out to be a good thing, Daniel Borque, who was also at Chinatown, reports:
He fell on third rail being hauled out. It was turned off or he'd have been a goner.
