    Police and the CTA are looking into surveillance camera footage from Loop transit stations to determine where and how a woman who is in “guarded” condition at a hospital fell onto some rail tracks.

    At about 5:45 a.m. in the 300 block of East Randolph Street, the woman reported that she had fallen onto some rail tracks, police said.

    She suffered some minor burns and was taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital in “guarded” condition, police News Affairs Officer Laura Kubiak said.

    A CTA spokeswoman was unable to confirm as of about 9 a.m. Saturday that the victim had fallen onto CTA tracks because the incident was reported away from any CTA station. But the agency is investigating the reported incident. “We’re doing everything we can” to find out what exactly happened, and where, CTA spokeswoman Catherine Hosinski said.

    That includes reviewing surveillance camera footage from CTA stations in that area from around that time of the morning, Hosinski said.
