CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) — A man was hospitalized after firefighters rescued him from under a CTA Green Line train Wednesday afternoon on the West Side.

Firefighters raised the train several inches with jacks near the Laramie stop and pulled out the man, Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford said.

They found the man under the train around 2:30 p.m., Langford said. It’s unclear how he got there.

The man was talking and alert when paramedics brought him to Stroger Hospital to be treated for trauma from the incident. His condition wasn’t made available.

“He’s a very lucky man,” Langford said.
