In what is suspected to be just one of the worst practical jokes in the entire hisory of the NYC subway system, two straphangers announced from the over the loud speaker conductor’s booth that they were members of terrorist group ISIS and they were hijacking the train.
The suspects got off at the next stop before they were caught in the downtown Manhattan R line train station. The train stopped at Union Square where it was taken out of service and investigators dusted for fingerprints and searched for evidence.
The NYPD do not believe that these pranksters pose any real threat. however, they will be following up on the investigation as if it were.
