A woman who fell into the subway tracks in Boston yesterday blamed sleepwalking for her shocking accident, reports CBS. The woman fell at the Davis Square station on the Red Line Monday morning. Several people at the station came to her rescue and helped pull her out of the tracks.
The unidentified woman told the ambulance crew that she had fallen asleep on the bench and must have sleepwalked into the tracks, according to CBS. She did not hit the electrified third rail, though she did injure her arm and was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital. MBTA official Joe Pesaturo said that no train was near the station at the time and she was not in danger of getting struck.
This is the second time a woman has fallen onto MBTA tracks in one week. Last week, a woman fell into the subway tracks at Downtown Crossing station on the Red Line.
