ATLANTA — A woman hit by a MARTA train Tuesday morning has been rescued, Atlanta firefighters said.

The woman entered the trackway at the Five Points station in downtown Atlanta around 8 a.m., MARTA spokeswoman Cara Hodgson said. An Atlanta Fire representative said she fell in between the tracks.

Atlanta firefighters said the victim was trapped under a northbound train. She was extricated shortly after and transported to Grady Hospital.

“She is conscious and alert, with what appear to be non-life threatening injuries,” Hodgson said.

MARTA’s northbound and southbound trains were stopped at the Five Points Station as crews worked the scene. Firefighters said they expected to clear the scene in 30 to 40 minutes. A bus shuttle was set up between Civic Center and West End stations.
