Fear seized hundreds of passengers on Tuesday morning at the Union Station subway station in downtown Los Angeles.

Apparently, one of the trains suffered mechanical problems, which forced the authorities to evacuate the passengers. Metro users had to walk the train tracks to get out of the station.

For its part, the Los Angeles Fire Department reported that loud sounds were heard coming out of the tunnel.

"You could hear and feel the electrical rumblings, as if there had been a short," said one of the passengers while he was being evacuated.

A driver said that "I have worked here for 20 years and had never seen anything like that."

So far no victims have been reported and the train with problems was taken out of circulation and will be investigated to determine the cause of the malfunction.
