The woman became pinned between the tracks and a subway car, sustaining serious injuries and unable to get up, fire officials told ABC News.

The incident occurred on a Manhattan-bound L train at the Bedford Avenue subway station in Brooklyn. The MTA suspended subway service in both directions in and out of lower Manhattan, while first responders worked to rescue the woman.

The unidentified woman was freed and taken to the hospital in stable condition. L train service has since resumed.
