CTA Brown Line Trains Get Snagged At Chicago Avenue After Man Gets Stuck While Getting Off Train

CHICAGO (CBS) -- Chicago Transit Authority Brown Line trains were halted at the Chicago Avenue stop for some time Thursday evening after a man got stuck while trying to get off a train.

The man was stepping off the train at the Chicago/Franklin stop, and he missed the platform, the Fire Department said. His foot and leg got stuck between the platform and the train car.

The man's cries for help sent a flurry of first responders to the scene. He was rushed to Northwestern Memorial Hospital after he was freed.

Meanwhile, power was shut down at Chicago/Franklin for the injured passenger for some time. Service had returned to normal by 9:24 p.m.

The issue comes not long after significant delays were reported on the Loop 'L' lines due to a sick customer.
