SOHO — Downtown 6 train service was stalled during the Friday morning rush after a person was struck on the subway tracks at the Spring Street station, authorities said.

The MTA has rerouted service along the downtown 6 line after the person was found alive under a train at the station, officials said.

Regular service along the line was restored around just before 10 a.m., an MTA spokesperson said. 

Emergency crews responded to a call of a person under a train at the subway station, near Lafayette Street, just before 8 a.m., an FDNY spokesman said.

The unidentified person was found “alive and talking” and hadn’t been taken to the hospital as of about 8:45 a.m., the spokesman added. It wasn't immediately clear how the person ended up on the tracks.

The MTA has routed 6 train service along the express route from Grand Central-42 Street Station to the Brooklyn Bridge-City Hall Station, a transit official said.

Commuters can also expect delays along the 4 and 5 lines, according to the MTA’s website.

How the person ended up on the tracks is unclear and police are on scene investigating the incident, officials said.
