The New York Police Department says 16 people have been treated for non-life-threatening injuries following a stampede at New York's Penn Station when Amtrak police used a stun gun to subdue a disruptive man.

The stampede happened Friday evening after a New Jersey Transit train with 1,200 passengers aboard made it to the station after being stuck in a Hudson River tunnel for nearly three hours. Authorities say the train became disabled Friday afternoon, when Amtrak was experiencing overhead power problems.

The overcrowded train station erupted in panic when Amtrak police used a Taser to subdue the man. Amtrak says he wasn't a passenger from the disabled train.
