SEPTA says a stuck train caused delays at 30th Street Station in Center City.

Chopper 6 was over the stalled commuter trains at 6 p.m. between suburban station, and 30th street station.

An electrical breaker on a Paoli Thorndale train tripped twice, causing large jolts to the train, officials say.

As the train was stopped for inspections, officials say passengers opened the emergency windows, and jumped about six-feet onto the tracks.

That prompted SEPTA to pause all train service in the area.

Scott Sauer, SEPTA Assistant General Manager of Operations said, "When they start to evacuate themselves, we're not always immediately aware and we still have trains coming through the area."

Service has been restored, but there are still some delays.

SEPTA says it plans to conduct a full investigation.
