Rosslyn Metro StationA dozen firefighters and paramedics are on scene at the Rosslyn Metro station trying to assist a man who fell into the gap between the platform and the station wall.

The intoxicated man was sitting on a wall and fell backwards, according to Arlington County Fire Battalion Chief Daniel Fitch. He became wedged between the platform wall and the station wall.

About a dozen firefighters and medics are attempting to render assistance to the man. Due to his large size, however, the man has thus far been unable to get back up to the platform, Fitch said.

So far, no disruptions to Metro service have been reported as a result of the incident.
