Service on the No. 7 train was down for nearly two hours this morning after a train was evacuated at the Hunters Point Ave. station following a loud noise in one of the cars, said an MTA spokesperson.
Around 10:15, a Manhattan-bound 7 train that was leaving the Hunters Point Ave. station stopped when there was a loud noise in the train, said the MTA spokesperson. The train had two cars out of the station, and passengers were safely evacuated back to the platform with no injuries.
Upon further investigation, the MTA determined that a loose pipe had hit the top of a train car creating the sound.
The MTA suspended 7 train service between Queensboro Plaza and the 34th Street-Hudson Yards stations from around 10:15 through 12:00 pm. Service has resumed but there are extensive delays.
