A man was critically injured Tuesday night after he fell on the tracks at a CTA Red Line station on the South Side.

He fell onto the tracks about 10:40 p.m. as a train was entering the 47th Street station at 220 W. 47th St., according to Chicago Police.

The man, whose exact age was not known, was pulled from the tracks “with serious traumatic injuries,” said Chicago Fire Department Deputy District Chief Michael Del Greco. He was taken in critical condition to Stroger Hospital.
