2 hurt severely when struck by MTA trains

November 12, 1994

Two people were critically injured yesterday when they were struck by Mass Transit Administration rail cars in separate incidents -- one of them an apparent suicide attempt, officials said.

In Baltimore County, a 51-year-old man jumped in front of a train at the Old Court Metro Station about 11:45 a.m., said MTA spokeswoman Dianna Rosborough. He was in critical but stable condition last night at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, the hospital said.

In the city, Eva M. Schaefer, 63, was hit by a northbound Central Light Rail train at the Westport station about 4 p.m. Ms. Rosborough said the woman -- whose condition was described as critical and unstable -- had stepped off a southbound train and was walking across the tracks.
