    SEPTA Employee Falls from Moving Train
    Police say a Philadelphia-area commuter rail employee was injured in a fall from a moving train, but used her flashlight to wave down another train and get help.

    Police say a Philadelphia-area commuter rail employee was injured in a fall from a moving train, but used her flashlight to wave down another train and get help.

    Tullytown police Sgt. Daniel Doyle said the woman fell from a SEPTA train just north of Levittown, 20 miles northeast of Philadelphia.

    Police found her hat, a shoe, train schedules and a ticket punch along the tracks. Doyle says the woman was knocked unconscious, but regained consciousness and waved down a later Amtrak train with her flashlight.

    An ambulance took the woman to St. Mary Medical Center in Middletown. Her name wasn't released, and authorities say her condition wasn't immediately available, according to the Bucks County Courier Times. The tracks were closed for about an hour, reopening about 10 p.m. Monday.
