Super Bowl foot traffic takes down fans at New Jersey train station


Super Bowl Causes Mass Transit Crowds

SECAUCUS, N.J. (AP) - Several people have collapsed in an overcrowded New Jersey train station while waiting in long lines to get to the Super Bowl.

Emergency medical workers pushed their way through the overheated crowd to treat the people at Secaucus Junction on Sunday afternoon.

Long lines have come to a standstill in front of airport-style security machines that apparently cannot handle the crowd volume. People were squeezed together in an enclosed stairwell.

As more trains arrived, police tried to thin the sweating, jostling crowd by spreading people across the platform.

Initial fan calls of "Seahawks" and "Broncos" gave way to angry shouts of "New Jersey, your Super Bowl sucks!"

So glad I'm not the EMT on duty down there today no offense but I'll just hang and volunteer in our town today and help the non-crazy, hpefully not drunk ones. Good luck to all of you out there tonight.

Next thing you'll see and hear on MSNBC and the Puffington Host is that Chris Cristie is the cause of the lines.

I get a laugh out of calling Times Square Super Bowl Boulevard. The de facto Super Bowl Boulevard is a combined Route 3 from the Lincoln Tunnel onto Route 120 to the Sports Complex. I made it a point to stay clear of that "Boulevard" today.

Don't you wish you'd stayed home and watched it on TV--like the rest of us.
