BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Firefighters rescued a man that was trapped inside the walls at the Back Bay Commuter Rail Station.

Crews responded to the scene at around 10 a.m. Saturday after getting a call about a man stuck inside the wall. While it is unclear how exactly the man behind the wall, a Boston Fire Department spokesperson said it appeared as if he had fallen from above and got stuck in between the walls near track 7.

When crews first arrived, they were able to hear the man but could not pinpoint his exact location. After about 30 minutes, crews were able to locate the man and began to break through the wall to free him.

It took crews about 45 minutes to break through the wall and rescue the man. It is unclear how long he had been behind the wall.

After being rescued, the man was taken to a local hospital. The extent of his injuries is unknown.
