A man narrowly avoided being hit by a CTA Blue Line train at the Washington stop.

The man fell onto the tracks Friday night at 19 North Dearborn and apparently rolled toward the platform as a train came. He got stuck between the train and the platform.

Power was temporarily shut off in both directions as emergency crews reached the man.

Paramedics took the man to Northwestern hospital where he was treated for injuries to his hand and shock.
