The BART station in Berkeley, California was temporarily closed after maintenance workers found a dismembered foot.

Track workers discovered the severed human foot on the tracks around 3 a.m.

The foot is believed to belong to a woman who was hit by a train on Dec. 20 and lost the lower part of her right leg, a BART spokesman told the Los Angeles Times.

“This was a right foot,” Allison said. “All signs point to the fact that this is probably the same foot.”

The woman survived.

The station was immediately closed but was reopened by 4:20 a.m., according to KRON4.

No foul play is suspected.
