A woman fell on the CTA tracks at the Morse station in Rogers Park Friday morning and was taken to a hospital in good condition.

Firefighters removed her from the tracks shortly after 7 a.m. at the station, 1358 W. Morse Ave., according to Chicago Fire Department spokesman Brian Johnson.

She had fallen in a gap between the train and the tracks, a police spokesman said.

The woman was taken to Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston in good condition, Johnson said.

A CTA spokesperson said the woman fell beneath the platform and did not make contact with a train. Service was paused until 7:45 a.m. while the fire department rescued her, the CTA said.
