HAYWARD (CBS SF) — A woman suffered major injuries Thursday morning when she fell or jumped onto the BART tracks at the Hayward station, a Hayward fire captain said.
The woman, whose injuries may be life-threatening, was reported on the tracks at about 9:40 a.m., BART officials and Fire Capt. Don Nichelson said.
The woman was taken to a hospital following the roughly 10-foot drop and a rescue by firefighters.
The station reopened at 11:15 a.m. and normal service on the Fremont line has been restored.
The emergency caused a major delay for trains on the Fremont line in the Fremont, Richmond and Daly City directions.
Southbound trains were briefly turning back at the Bay Fair station while northbound trains were turning around at the South Hayward station, and Alameda Contra Costa Transit buses took passengers between the stations.
