Passenger describes as “unknown explosion, creates near stampede, no injuries.”

NY DAILY NEWS | By Dan Rivoli, Sasha Goldstein:   Service along the 7 train line in Manhattan and to the Hunters Point Ave. station in Queens was suspended for about 30 minutes after a reported “train with mechanical problems.”   No trains were running from the Queens stop all the way over to the 34 St-Hudson Yards stop on Manhattan’s west side, the MTA said Tuesday afternoon.

The issue was reported around 4:30 p.m. Service was reported restored around 5 p.m., though express service has been suspended indefinitely, the MTA said.

Christopher Landry was on his way home to Sunnyside when the train pulled into the station, the doors opened and there was “a really loud bang.”

“It was loud enough that you could feel the thud in your chest,” the investment firm worker told the Daily News.  The sound sent riders spilling out of the train, where they were greeted by “a thick blue smoke” pouring out from beneath one of the cars.

“There was just this wall of people running at me,” Landry said. “People were probably starting to panic. Everybody just started running toward the stairs.”
