    A woman in her 20s was hit by a Metro-North train after she was pushed by a homeless man on the platform and fell onto the tracks Wednesday morning, the MTA said.

    The woman was standing on the platform at the White Plains station when the 39-year-old man pushed her and she fell onto the tracks, spokeswoman Marjorie Anders said.

    She was hit by an empty northbound train that was heading to a train yard.

    She was taken to Westchester Medical Center and the man was arrested at the scene. Her condition was not immediately known.
