That is the terrifying second an explosion shook the New York
Subway after a practice hits a ‘metallic marker’ left on the tracks
Within the footage, a practice is seen pulling into a Subway
station earlier than a sudden flash of sunshine and large bang power
the driving force to slam on the emergency breaks.
Police sources confirmed to the New York Day by day Information that they
had launched a probe into the clip, filmed on April 2 at
Nostrand Avenue station in Brooklyn.
The incident is believed to have been captured on digicam by a
practice engineer who was on the platform on the time.
He had reportedly watched vandals ditch some kind of metallic
marker on the tracks earlier than the practice got here into the station and
struck it, inflicting the explosion.
The incident occurred on the top of the morning rush hour
and led to delays for commuters of over an hour.

MTA spokesman Adam Lisberg mentioned in an announcement: “We are going to work
with the NYPD to determine and seize the perpetrators
chargeable for this.”
