Last week, a 59-year-old Massachusetts man was injured after reportedly jumping from a moving commuter train in Central Square. The train was headed to Rockport, and the man is apparently homeless and living in Revere.
A representative from the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority said the train accident occurred just before 9pm on Thursday evening, when the man leapt from the train, lost his footing, and feel between the platform and the train as it began to move again. The MBTA accident victim reportedly injured his left arm and was given first aid by passengers. Commuter train service resumed at 11:20pm that night.
As of last Friday, the train accident victim was in serious condition at Boston’s Massachusetts General Hospital.
