SOMERVILLE, Mass. (NBC/VNR) - Bystanders rescued a woman at a suburban Boston Metro station after she accidentally stepped off the platform and fell on to the tracks.
The surveillance footage released by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority shows the woman walking across the empty platform and then falling into the train pit early Monday morning.
About a dozen or so people rushed to help seconds later, with some jumping into the pit to pull out the woman.
There were no trains approaching the station at the time.
According to officials, the woman never came in contact with the electrified third rail, and she was treated for an arm injury.
The 31-year-old said she had fallen asleep on a bench waiting for a train and possibly slept-walked right into the pit.
