The workers were between the Fort Totten and West Hyattsville stations on the Green Line when a metal rod one of the workers was carrying touched the electrified third rail, giving him a shock, Metro said.

The second worker was injured going to his coworker's aid.

They were taken to a hospital with injuries they are expected to survive, Metro said.
