A man trapped beneath a train at Fields Corner Friday morning, bringing the Red Line Ashmont branch to a halt at rush hour, appears to have survived.

Fire officials say the victim, who has not been identified, was “conscious and alert” after a rescue effort by first responders.

The MBTA first reported a person struck by a train at the stop at 8:13 a.m. and announced that service between JFK and Ashmont would be replaced with shuttle buses. The T announced at 9:09 that service would resume and that shuttle buses would be phased out.

Meanwhile, Boston Fire worked to respond to a person trapped underneath the train, and announced shortly before service resumed that the person had been rescued alive. The extent of the their injuries was not immediately clear.
