Metra and BNSF Railway are investigating after a woman trying to board a train got her arm and cane caught in a closed door at the Metra station in southwest suburban La Grange.

The woman was trapped outside the train, but a passenger was able to flip the door's emergency switch just as the train began to move.

The woman was unhurt. Metra says it will look at whether the train crew followed proper procedures.
