The woman who was extracted from underneath a BART train last night has reportedly survived.
We read the good news on KTVU this morning which says a source told the news station that the woman had a head injury but was still talking.
BART trains came to a screeching halt just before 5 p.m. yesterday after the woman got stuck underneath a train at Montgomery Street station. BART was forced to close the station to all commuters for over an hour, causing massive delays along the entire system.
KTVU is reporting that a surveillance video shows the woman running toward the track about 4:50 p.m. and jumping down as the train was slowing to stop at the platform.
Police arrived about five minutes later and evacuated the entire station. BART was forced to single-track trains and bypass the Montgomery Street station. The station was reopened at about 6:15 p.m. but delays continued for hours afterward.
BART police are still trying to determine why the woman ran onto the track. As of now, there's no evidence that she was pushed, KTVU reports.
The woman is expected to survive.
