Man trapped beneath light rail train in fairly good condition
BALTIMORE (WBFF)-- An adult male was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma after being trapped beneath a light rail train for approximately 45 minutes.
According to the Baltimore City Fire Chief Gleen Kukucka, the train was sitting on the victim's abdomen. Fire crews had to cut a section of the undercarriage off of the train in order to rescue the man.
Kukucka says that the man was in pain but was conscious and alert the entire time. Medical crews on scene saw no visible wounds to the body, but were unable to determine if he was suffering from any internal bleeding.
Officials from the Maryland Transit Administration say that the man was walking the tracks between Howard Street and Dolphin Street when he was stuck by a light rail train traveling northbound. It was at that point that he was pinned and thus trapped beneath the train.
