• Cambridge Fire rescues person trapped between train, platform at Central Square


    CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The Cambridge Fire Department has extricated a person trapped between a train and platform at Central Square.

    Cambridge Fire responded to the station Thursday morning for the trapped passenger.

    The woman was extricated, alert and conscious, and was taken to Mass. General Hospital.

    Officials turned off the third rail power and trains were ordered stopped in both directions, but control has since been returned to the MBTA.

    Shuttle buses are replacing train service in both directions between Harvard and Park Street.

    Commuters should expect delays.
