CHICAGO (STMW) – Two Central District police officers were able to stop a West Side woman from jumping in front of a CTA train early Easter Sunday in the Loop.

The incident occurred about 1 a.m. at 200 N. State St. where the 41-year-old West Side woman was distraught over the recent death of her son, police said.

She was threatening to apparently jump in front of a train, but two responding officers were able to calm her down, comfort her and make sure she had medical attention.

The woman was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital for an evaluation, police said.
