Man Gets Minor Injuries After Being Trapped Under Orange Line Train

A Boston subway line was temporarily shut down after a man was dragged and became trapped under a train.

The man was dragged about 30 feet and became stuck under the Orange Line train in the Back Bay Station at about 9:15 p.m. Sunday.

A spokesman for the fire department says the man was between the rails.

He was taken to the hospital with what were described as minor arm and leg injuries, and he was also covered in grease.

It remains unclear how ended up on the tracks.

The man's name was not made public, but authorities say he is 25 and lives in the city's Jamaica Plain neighborhood.

The Orange Line was running normally for the Monday morning commute.
