A 75-year-old man suffered a scary fall Monday morning when he fell from the northbound train platform at the Croton Falls train station.

Luck, however, was thankfully on his side. At the time of the fall, no trains were arriving at the station and a member of the Croton Falls Fire Department, who happened to be in the hamlet at the time of the fall, was able to help the man back onto the platform.

MTA Police, the North Salem Volunteer Ambulance Corps and Croton Falls Fire Department all responded to the incident within minutes. The man was transported to Putnam Hospital for further evaluation.
