CROTON-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. -- A 27-year-old Yonkers man was hospitalized Friday after he accidentally touched an electrified third rail at the Croton-Harmon train yard, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said.

He and a 45-year-old Pleasant Valley man were working on a train early Friday morning when they both were injured, the MTA said.

The unidentified 45-year-old suffered first-degree, or superficial, burns. He was treated at the Westchester County Medical Center in Vahalla and released, the MTA said.

The 27-year-old, whom the MTA also did not identify, suffered first-, second-, and third-degree burns.

Third-degree burns are the most serious as they involve wounds that extend through all the skin’s layers.

The MTA did not have the 27-year-old’s exact condition.
