“I walked up to the person, I was trying to get the person on videotape, and then said, ‘Are you okay? Are you okay?’ over and over, and the person said ‘No,’ so the person wasn’t okay,” Vitiello said.
Firefighters put the man on a backboard to pull him out. It took firefighters about 20 minutes to extract the man and get him on a gurney.
The man had no visible injuries, but was taken to Los Angeles County+USC Medical Center, Gonzeles said, adding that the Red Line resumed normal service at 4:05 p.m.
