A woman lost her right arm when she fell off the platform of the Metro Rail Transit-3 (MRT3) and onto the rail tracks on Tuesday afternoon.
Angeline Fernando, 24, had just alighted from a northbound train at the Ayala Station when the accident happened.
“She fell down on the tracks in between the first car and the second car of the same moving train and hit her right hand which was cut” [off], a text message from MRT-3 sent to reporters by Transportation Undersecretary for Rails Cesar Chavez said.
The passenger, along with the severed arm, was taken to the Makati Medical Center aboard a lifeline ambulance, the message added.
Chavez said the MRT management will pay for Fernando’s hospital expenses.
