On the 27th of April 2012 at approximately 9:45 pm the BCFD received a call out to a person trapped between a subway train and the platform of the Maple Place train station. When SCEMS Rescue 1 arrived on scene the crew immediately set up a control point and called for Emergency back up. Within 4 minutes of receiving the call Engine two arrived and began to help the paramedics of the rescue pull the patient from between the platform and the train. 12 minutes after receiving the call the crew of Rescue 1 had the patient wrapped up and in the back of the ambulance and off to the Stud County regional Hospital in Norbrick City. It’s believed that the man had got off the train to validate his ticket and when he got back on the door closed and his leg fell and became trapped between the platform and the train. If it wasn’t for a police officer bringing the incident to the train driver’s attention, the train would have left the station and the man would have been dragged for 1200 meters to the next station. The patient is now in a stable condition in the Stud County Hospital.
