Major BART delays continue after person ‘trapped’ between train and platform at Balboa Park

A person stuck between a train and boarding platform at Balboa Park BART Station has been freed and hospitalized, but the incident caused major delays throughout BART Monday morning.

That person was identified as an adult male by the San Francisco Fire Department, and remains in critical condition.

The incident prompted officials to close the station Monday morning at 9:25 a.m., and by 9:42 a.m. the person was rescued.

The station remains closed as of 10:15 a.m.

“We are still in the early investigative process in finding how that person came to be trapped between the platform and the train,” said BART spokesperson Jim Allison.

Trains are running through Balboa Park BART Station on only one of its two tracks while BART Police and medical personnel investigate the tracks where the person was trapped, Allison said.

“We never want a delay like this on our system ever,” BART spokespeople wrote on Twitter. “But this is a major medical emergency where Balboa Park Station has been closed due to it. We have a responsibility to treat emergencies like this seriously.”
