There were delays on the Ashmont Branch of the MBTA's Red Line Wednesday afternoon due to a medical emergency at Shawmut station.

The transit agency said in a tweet around 2 p.m. that shuttle buses were service between JFK/UMass and Ashmont stations due to a medical emergency. Transit police later confirmed that a 14-year-old Boston Public Schools student intentionally jumped onto the tracks as a train was coming. That student was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

Train service has resumed.
