An overnight maintenance crew at the Downtown Berkeley BART station found a severed human foot about 3 a.m. Monday morning.

BART officials believe the foot belonged to a woman struck by a train at the station Dec. 20. The woman survived but lost her lower right leg in the incident, according to a statement by BART spokesperson Jim Allison.

The foot, recovered weeks after the incident and from behind the third rail near the wall, was also a right foot.

“No foul play is suspected,” Allison said.

BART conducted an “expansive search and cleanup” after the woman was struck several weeks ago before the train returned to service, according to Allison.

Trains ran as scheduled Monday morning after the foot was discovered.
