A teenager is in a serious but stable condition after being hit by a train at Edwardstown in Adelaide's south-west.
Emergency services were called to Woodlands Park Railway Station just after 6:30pm on Thursday.
"When police arrived they rendered first aid until the paramedics got there and emergency services all worked together to free her from underneath the train where she was stuck," Senior Constable Kate Dawson said.
"She was taken to the Flinders Medical Centre by ambos in a critical condition but we understand she is now in a serious but stable condition which is good news."
The train line was shut down for sometime but has since reopened.
"We'd like to thank everyone for their patience," Senior Constable Dawson said.
