Trains on the CTA Red Line were disrupted for a short time Thursday afternoon when a man fell onto the tracks.

It happened near the Monroe station in the Loop.

A Chicago Fire Department spokesman says the man did not come in contact with the third rail. He was removed from the tracks and is in good condition.

Red Line trains ran on the elevated tracks while emergency personnel helped the man.
