The NYPD confirmed in a statement to PEOPLE that officers responded to a 911 call at approximately 10:25 a.m. of a female on the tracks at the Fulton Street subway station in lower Manhattan.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found a "conscious" and "responsive" 29-year-old woman who had been "struck by a southbound No. 3 train," per the NYPD. An initial investigation determined that she had been "pushed onto the tracks."

NYPD said that EMS responded to the scene, and the woman, who was not immediately identified, was transported to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition.
