A person who was struck by a BART train Tuesday night is, remarkably, recovering in the hospital following the collision.

According to BART spokesperson Jim Allison, "witnesses saw the person jump in front of the train as it approached" San Leandro's Bay Fair BART station at 8:50 p.m. Tuesday.

A southbound train heading toward Fremont struck the person, who then "bounced back on to the platform," Allison told SFist Wednesday morning.

Passengers on the train that struck the person were evacuated, and the station was closed until 9:30 p.m. as BART police investigated the incident.

The person, who Allison says was "conscious and breathing" following the collision, was transported to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley, Allison says, where they continue to recover today.

If someone you know exhibits warning signs of suicide: do not leave the person alone; remove any firearms, alcohol, drugs or sharp objects that could be used in a suicide attempt; and call the U.S. National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (8255) or take the person to an emergency room or seek help from a medical or mental health professional.
