Hundreds Trapped As No. 7 Train Stalls

Hundreds of passengers were trapped inside a No. 7 train that stalled under the East River for nearly two hours after it started experiencing mechanical problems, the MTA said.

The incident brought morning rush hour service between Queens and Manhattan to a grinding halt.

According to officials, passengers were trapped from 8 a.m. until about 10 a.m. when a rescue train brought them back to Grand Central Terminal.

Service on the No. 7 line resumed about 10:30 a.m. with some delays and also no injuries were reported, according to the MTA's website.
