BOSTON (AP) — Three people waiting for a subway train in Boston rescued a man who tumbled off a station platform and onto the tracks.

A transit agency spokesman says the man fell onto the Orange Line tracks at North Station at about 9 p.m. Wednesday.

Video shows the man walking straight onto the tracks, where he remains motionless. Three people then jump down and lift him to safety, including one man who came from the opposite platform.

Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority spokesman Joe Pesaturo says a dispatcher was notified and trains in the area were stopped so the man was never in danger of being struck.

Pesaturo says the man was alert and had no visible injuries when pulled back onto the platform. He was taken to a hospital.
