NEW YORK (AP) — Passengers have been stuck for several hours on two New York City subway trains stalled in snow drifts near Kennedy Airport.
NYC Transit spokesman Charles Seaton says that snow drifts and ice on the third rail have stalled trains at two stops in Queens, north and south of Kennedy Airport.
A rescue train has been sent to one train, and passengers have been stranded since about 1 a.m. on the second train.
Christopher Mullen tells NY1 cable TV that he took the subway after he couldn't get a car service or taxi out of Kennedy on Sunday night. He says passengers are stuck aboard the train without food, water or heat.
