JERSEY CITY AND BEYOND -- There were two breaches in the security of the PATH train tunnels and New York subways early Sunday morning, according to the New York Post.
The first break was by a 20-year-old man from Bayonne. He allegedly jumped on the track at 3 a.m. Sunday morning near the Manhattan PATH and walked two miles underneath the World Trade Center to Jersey City, reports said. A Port Authority worker saw him climb off the tracks and the man was arrested.
According to police, he allegedly said, "I just put a bomb down on the tracks." He also allegedly said to a Port Authority worker that he walked because the train never came. He was charged with criminal trespass and released.
The same morning, at 4:30 a.m., a band of four men ranging from the ages of 21 to 27 climbed into the Second Avenue Subway tunnel at 112th Street for an underground excursion involving Roman candles and cameras, the Post reported.
The "urban explorers," as they described themselves, were planning to take pictures in the tunnel with the candles as light.
Four men from around the Northeast were charged with criminal trespass.
