Video footage showed firefighters transferring passengers from the derailed train to a rescue train using a small platform connecting the two. New York Governor Kathy Hochul expressed that the top priority is the safety of all passengers and railroad workers, and efforts are being made to resume train services as quickly as possible.

The cause of the derailment is yet to be determined, and MTA officials anticipate service disruptions to continue until Friday morning.
