John Stephen Dwyer reports on an incident at the Back Bay Orange Line stop around 2:30 p.m.:
White male, late 20s-early 30s was acting delirious and bumped into me on the Orange Line platform. A few minutes later, I heard a noise and soon saw he'd fallen on the Outbound tracks. At least two men jumped down before I arrived; I helped them get him back on the platform and then I helped the older of the rescuers back onto the platform. He had stopped to retrieve the fallen man's phone and a bag. The man who had fallen was badly bruised on his face and arm. He wasn't moving and I asked if anyone had Narcan. He said he wasn't on opiates and was responsive from that point on. Several people remained with him until a T inspector arrived. I left shortly after.
You might think this sort of thing would give you an adrenaline rush, but the train platform is hot like a sauna and mostly I just want to get home and put on some dry clothes. Blech.
Around 1:20 p.m., meanwhile, somebody apparently nodded out and then plunged to the Red Line tracks on the Braintree side of JFK/UMass. Firefighters got the person up to the platform for care.
