The delay was caused by a woman who was struck by a train and trapped underneath the vehicle at the Terminal A Station at Philadelphia International Aiport, 6ABC reports. The woman is in stable condition.
SEPTA officials said the service disruption has prompted delays on other rail lines. Riders should expect residual delays until operations are restored.
Within the hour, SEPTA is planning to resume service in both directions. The first inbound train to Center City will depart from the airport at 10:37 a.m. The outbound train to the airport was scheduled to leave 30th Street Station at 10:25 a.m.
