A 48-year-old woman suffered severe burns after she fell onto the electrified third rail at a Bronx subway station today. The incident happened shortly before 11 a.m. at the Gun Hill Road 2/5 train platform, and involved multiple good Samaritan commuters and at least one police officer leaping down onto the tracks to help the woman to safety.

Sources told the Daily News that Chelsea resident Martina Pamplin was walking on the elevated platform when she fell onto the tracks at 10:40 a.m.

"I was standing on the platform and heard a thud,” witness Malik Saldana told the tabloid.

Others described watching in shock as Pamplin's left arm was critically burned by the third rail. "I took out my phone and called the police," Bronx resident Jacqueline Loud told the News. "Then I saw smoke coming from the body and her left arm was burning." Two other commuters and one police officer leapt onto the platform and removed Pamplin from the tracks, and the Post reports that she was later rushed to Montefiore Medical Center in cardiac arrest. One of Pamplin's rescuers was also taken to Montefiore after suffering an electric shock to her hand.

Power on the 2/5 tracks was briefly cut while EMS responders worked to remove Pamplin from the station. Power to the lines was restored by 11:05 a.m.

The MTA did not respond to our request for more information about the incident.
