September 07, 2023 BRONX, New York – Water rushed into the Pelham Bay bound side of the Brook Ave Subway Station Platform from an open hydrant as train riders began their morning commute early Thursday morning.
The hydrant was possibly left open after a water main break one block over on St. Anns Avenue and 138th Street. Water remained on the tracks in the tunnel from the steady flow that made its way through an emergnecy exit midway between the Cypress Ave. and Brook Ave. Stations in the Bronx
According to communications from Bronx FD radio scanner, water covered the third rail and caused service disruption on the northbound local track. MTA suspended service on the 6 train line abandoning passengers in the Brook Ave. Station.
At around 5:00 a.m., FDNY firefighters responded to the water main break on 138th St. and St. Anns Ave. that left major road flooding on the road, as well as in tranist on the 6 train line.
