An approaching train stopped just feet away from striking the man. A worker saw the man fall and was able to alert the train driver to stop just in time.
"It was just an all around good team effort," said MBTA Inspector Roberto Russell. "He was laying there, that was it."
The man was then taken for treatment for a laceration to the back of his head.
He told police at the scene that he had just come from a Hemp Fest rally and was feeling "out of it."
