UPDATE: A victim was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center by helicopter after losing his arm when he was struck by a train in Hillsdale that was later stopped in Emerson.
The victim apparently tried to board the train while it was moving and was injured around 4:20 p.m., multiple sources said.
“The crew didn’t even realize what happened,” an official source with direct knowledge of the incident told CLIFFVIEW PILOT. “The train made two others stops.”
AirMed One landed at the George White School in Hillsdale and collected the amputated victim, who was still breathing, another source said.
