ORINDA (CBS SF) – Bay Area Rapid Transit trains were delayed on the Pittsburg/Bay Point line Friday morning after a person fell onto the tracks at the Orinda station, an agency dispatcher said.

Bay Area Rapid Transit trains were delayed on the Pittsburg/Bay Point line Friday morning after a person fell onto the tracks at the Orinda station, an agency dispatcher said.

According to Moraga-Orinda Fire Battalion Chief Sean Perkins, the call came in at around 7:23 a.m. that a man who looked to be in his twenties had a medical condition, and had passed out on the tracks and was treated on site for minor head injuries.

The man has been taken from the tracks, but the incident is causing delays of 15 to 20 minutes in both the San Francisco and East Bay directions, the dispatcher said.

There were reports that good samaritans jumped onto the tracks to help the man after the fall. KPIX 5 will have more at noon.
