Red Line trains were rerouted to elevated tracks for more than 30 minutes during the Tuesday morning commute after a person fell on the subway tracks in the Loop.

The CTA cut the power to all Red Line trains about 6:25 a.m. after a report of a person on the tracks at the Monroe station, 26 S. State St., according to CTA spokesman Jeff Tolman.

The person was not struck by a train and did not make contact with the third rail, Tolman said. Paramedics responded to the scene.

As of 7 a.m., service was resuming normal routing via the subway between the Fullerton and Cermak-Chinatown stations.
