On Sunday, a subway train derailed near a station in Harlem, frightening passengers and resulting in a power outage as people were evacuated from trains along the subway line.
A passenger posted this picture on Twitter showing damage to the train floor, writing: "Just got off the derailed A train that crashed into the subway wall". The Fire Department of NY said 34 people suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Danny said passengers pried the train doors open to get to another auto, which was pitch black and also had smoke.
Delays were reported throughout the subway system, which has been plagued by problems this year. But when he said that there was smoke on the tracks, that's when we became more concerned.
Service on the A, B, C and D lines has been suspended until the investigation is completed.
The footage shows firefighters helping people off the train and down the tracks. The authority has confirmed damage to tracks, switches and the adjacent tunnel wall, all of which takes time to fix.
The cause of the crash, which occurred around 10 a.m., was not immediately clear and officials from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which runs the subways, were en route to the scene.

The left-hander, who has dropped to 16th in the world rankings, served an ace to clinch her 20th tour title. On Friday, American Coco Vandeweghe retired with an ankle injury in her quarter-final against Muguruza.
Lhota said the smoke was caused by sparks and the garbage and sanitation along the tracks.
Dozens of riders were injured in Harlem Tuesday when a subway train derailed and careened into a wall, authorities said.
"The emergency brakes automatically went on". "Shortly after, we smelled a strong gas smell".
The Riders Alliance, an organization of subway and bus riders in NY, blamed the derailment on the state's governor, Andrew Cuomo.
"People didn't panic", he said.
"Incidents like this will keep happening until Governor Cuomo takes charge with a plan to fix a failing transit system", Raskin continued, also referencing a stalled F train that left commuters trapped underground for about 45 minutes in early June. And with shuttle bus service already underway, chances aren't looking good for a smooth ride home.
