NYC subway broke down because someone hit a button
The New York City’s subway system recently experienced a power outage that left hundreds of passengers stranded. An outside investigation assigns blame to someone accidentally pressing an “Emergency Power Off” button.
Investigators found a “strong possibility” that someone pressed the button since they noticed the plastic guard was missing.
“New Yorkers deserve absolute confidence in a fully functioning subway system, and it is our job to restore that confidence,” New York Gov. Kathy Hochul said in a statement.
The outage affected over 80 trains and lasted for several hours.
