Fans collapse while waiting for ride to Super Bowl at overcrowded train station

Several fans collapsed at the Secaucus Junction train station in New Jersey Sunday, while waiting in the overcrowded station for transportation to the Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

Emergency personnel made their way through the massive crowd to treat the affected people.

The overcrowding was a product of increased security (amongst other things); and according to Tom Kaminski of WCBS 880, the entire N.J. TRANSIT system is experiencing delays of at least 30 minutes.

Fans (for the most part), are understanding about the delays.

“It’s for everybody’s safety,” said Pennsylvania resident Paul, who was at Secaucus Junction. “So I’m all for it. The only thing I have yet to go through is the radiation detector. I’m sure that’s going to be unevasive. As long as they don’t do any kind of physical full-body searches, we’ll be in good shape.”

The hosting committee (a joint effort between N.Y. and N.J.) borrowed TSA agents from LaGuardia Airport to perform screenings at both the Secaucus location and Penn Station.

Agents from U.S. customs and Border Protection are also enforcing a no-fly zone that encompasses the ten miles surrounding the stadium; and are doing so with the use of Black Hawk helicopters.
