NYC subway station near World Trade Center is evacuated after three ‘suspicious packages’ | World | News


Police rushed to Fulton Street station earlier this morning following reports of two abandoned packages in the subway station. They said these “suspicious packages” were not explosives – but a third abandoned item was found shortly after and is still under examination.  

This latest package was found near a garbage can in Chelsea on West 16th Street and 7th Avenue. 

The first two items which sparked chaos turned out to be pressure cookers who didn’t appear to be modified in any way, one according to NYPD’s counterterrorism officers. 

The third package appears to resemble the others, but police have yet to clear the area.
