Harlem Subway Station Booth’s Fire Extinguisher Goes Off, Sends MTA Agent To Hospital

An MTA station agent was taken to the hospital Friday when the booth’s fire extinguisher accidentally went off, according to officials.

The transit worker at the 116th St. station in Harlem on the Nos. 2 and 3 lines went to St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital with difficulty breathing around 11 a.m., according to the FDNY.

An MTA spokeswoman said that it appears the station booth’s halon gas fire suppression system went off accidentally — and the station agent inhaled the chemical.
