A CareFlight helicopter was called to Kingswood by the Ambulance Service just after 10.40am today, where the 65-year-old woman had been hit by a train while she was on the platform at Kingswood Station.

The helicopter landed at 10.50am in a park 100 metres for the station.

The CareFlight Doctor and duty paramedic ran the 100 metres to join with Ambulance NSW Paramedics and Police to treat the injured woman who had lacerations to her head and body, possible fractures and was unconscious.
