Passengers evacuated from disabled NYC subway train

WABC-TV(NEW YORK) -- Three New York City commuters are being examined for minor smoke inhalation after passengers were evacuated from a disabled subway train in New York City Tuesday morning.

It appears that the wheel of one subway car came off the track about 200 feet short of the 125th Street station at St. Nicholas Avenue in Harlem. Passengers were evacuated and employees of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) arrived on the scene to examine the car.

Fire officials said the three injuries were not life-threatening.

The New York City Emergency Management Department described the incident as a partial derailment, which caused a power outage to A, B, C and D trains between 125th and 145th Streets.
