New York City subway train derailed Friday morning in Queens, disrupting service on several local lines.
An express F train bound for Manhattan and Brooklyn derailed shortly before 10:30 a.m., according to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the New York City Fire Department.
Firefighters and emergency medical service responders who went to the scene guided passengers to emergency ladders that led up through grates to the street as the derailment site was evacuated, officials said.
There were no immediate reports of serious injuries, and the fire department said no one had been transported to local hospitals. However, EMS crews evaluated several riders who rested on stretchers or in wheelchairs after they climbed from the subway to the street.
All passengers had been safely evacuated as of 12:15 p.m., the MTA said.
