The incident happened about 4:10 p.m. She was not struck by the train and Buffalo firefighters treated her at the scene. She was taken by ambulance to the Erie County Medical Center.

A witness and Metro Rail video show that the woman jumped voluntarily and that there is apparently no suspicious behavior involved. NFTA police are investigating.
