A man struck by a Red Line train at the Hollywood and Vine station has been rescued, according to a live report on KTLA. He is in critical condition and has been taken to an area hospital, reports the LAFD via email.

At around 7:30 this morning the man fell from the platform at the station, and became trapped between the platform and the train. Emergency response personnel were able to extract the male, who was reported as being in "severe distress."

Red Line service was halted during the course of the incident and the rescue; it is expected to resume shortly.
