Train stuck in tunnel between NJ, NY finally makes it out

"If you're standing at an airport and you see people in uniform running past you in an obvious state of panic, that really creates panic", said Cuomo, who said he has brought NY state troopers into the city to conduct "specialized training at Penn Station, the large airports (and) Grand Central Terminal".

The man who was tased is now in police custody, Amtrak spokesperson Vernae Graham told BuzzFeed News. "All is good. I saw people with bleeding noses and piles of luggage, possessions, shoes strewn all over pen station". Shoppers fled for the exits in nearby Macy's after rumors of a shooter spread there.

No deaths occurred in the incident and all of the sustained injuries were deemed non-life-threatening, authorities said, according to CNN.

NJ Transit officials said Amtrak is responsible for maintaining the power to the tracks in the tunnel. No injuries were reported in any of the incidents. As people were returning from the train they witnessed what one person described as a "wave of screaming and falling people".

A New Jersey Transit train with about 1,200 passengers aboard is stuck in a Hudson River tunnel between NY and New Jersey.

"About 30 seconds later, the train just came to a complete stop", Mrs Sanati said.

The power went out, except for emergency lights, and so did the air conditioning, said Sanati, who made video of the darkened auto.

But as always, even in the most stressful of situations, some people did the unthinkable: they banded together and made friends. Neither the LIRR nor NJ Transit supplied estimates for how many commuting hours were lost to delays.

There are still 90-minute delays in and out of Penn Station as a result. "This is the worst".

An NJ Transit spokeswoman said Amtrak was in charge of getting the train moving again and ensuring passengers' safety.
