A medical emergency on board a Metro train near Jolimont station this morning has resulted in passengers being stranded on board for an hour.
Metro warned of major delays of 30 minutes or more on the Epping, Hurstbridge and South Morang lines while paramedics treat a sick passenger.
A Metro spokesman said a passenger on the train suffered an epileptic fit and hit their head just after 9.30am.
"They can't be moved off the train so the train's stopped there," he said.
"There are people on the train. We're just waiting to get an ambulance there."
By midday, trains had returned to their normal schedules.
He said it was unclear how many people were on the halted train.
Before paramedics arrived at the station today, Metro tweeted: ‘‘To those stuck on the train at Jolimont, we are awaiting an ambulance that has now taken about an hour’’.
The Age believes the paramedics may have been sent to the wrong railway station.
The ambulance arrived to treat the patient about 10.50am, however trains were banked up waiting to pass through Jolimont.
Delays are expected to continue for the rest of the morning.
Ambulance Victoria has been contacted for comment.
