HARLEM, NY — Two people were taken to the hospital after being hit by a train Tuesday morning in a Harlem subway station, an FDNY spokeswoman said.

Responders arrived at the Central Park North and Lenox Avenue train station shortly before 6:30 a.m. for reports of injured people on the tracks, an FDNY spokeswoman said. Both injured people were taken to St. Luke's hospital, the spokeswoman said.

One person suffered serious injuries and one person suffered minor injuries, an FDNY spokeswoman said. The spokeswoman could not confirm information about the injured people's condition or identity.

Trains were delayed along the 2, 3, 4 and 5 lines as responders operated at the subway station, the MTA said.
