BOSTON (WHDH) - Some Red Line rail service is facing significant delays as crews respond to Park Street Station for a “medical emergency,” according to officials.

On its website, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority said the Red Line was “experiencing delays of up to 20 minutes” due to the emergency.

The MBTA also mentioned around 1:50 p.m. that some trains may be held due to the response.

The transportation authority later announced that shuttle buses had been dispatched as MBTA Transit Police began an investigation.

Officials told 7NEWS a male has been taken from the scene to a nearby hospital for emergency care and was “conscious and alert when transported.”

“Preliminarily, an adult male appears to (have entered) the right of way intentionally as a (Red Line) train (was) approaching,” MBTA Transit Police Department Superintendent Richard Sullivan said in a statement.

By 2:45 p.m., regular service had resumed as the MBTA started phasing out the shuttles in use.

At the same, the Boston Fire Department tweeted out photos of the technical rescue performed at the station. According to the tweet from Boston FD, the victim was transported with non-life threatening injuries.
