Another worker helped pull the man to safety. He was taken to Hahnemann Hospital. Officials have not yet revealed his condition.

Shuttle buses were operating in place of trains on the Market-Frankford line between 5th and 40th streets. Train service was resumed shortly after 5 p.m. in both directions.
