See video: Man walking on subway tracks delays several trains


A man walking on the Seventh Avenue subway tracks caused delays on several train lines during the morning rush hour Thursday, the MTA said. 

The man was first seen lying on the uptown express 2/3 tracks between Christopher and 14th streets at about 8 a.m., the MTA said.

He was dangerously close to touching the third rail, a spokeswoman said, and was caught on video walking toward a stopped train.

Power was shut off between 34th Street-Penn Station and Christopher Street, causing delays on the 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 trains for about an hour, the MTA said.

The man was removed from the tracks and taken into custody by police.
