CHICAGO - CTA Blue Line service resumed after an “unauthorized person on the tracks” halted trains between Damen and Racine during the evening rush Tuesday.
Service was suspended about 5:24 p.m., CTA said.
Trains began moving with delays less than a half hour later, CTA said.
A man had fallen onto the tracks from what appeared to be a “medical emergency,” according to the Chicago Fire Department. He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in “serious but stable condition.”
The man wasn’t electrocuted, and he wasn’t hit by a train, fire said.
