Firefighters had to use a sledgehammer to free a man who apparently fell behind a wall along a track at the MBTA commuter rail station in Back Bay Saturday morning, Boston fire said.
Firefighters responded to the station around 10 a.m. after receiving a report that a man had fallen, said firefighter Brian Alkins, a department spokesman. It took about 30-minutes for firefighters to find the man behind the wall, he said.
They could hear him, but had difficulty locating him, Alkins said. Once they found him, the man was freed in about 40 minutes, he said.
