The woman was hit by a piece of concrete of about a foot in diameter, which fell from the ceiling. There were large stains of blood left on the platform.

Four special constable officers were on the scene treating the woman along with two security guards.

Metrolinx says the area where the incident took place is closed for investigation.

Passengers can access the Bay East Teamway and the York GO Concourse, which is also accessible through the Union Station.

“The City of Toronto is bringing in an engineer to assess the structure itself and we’ll have to refer all questions to the city for now,” said Metrolinx.
