"For a second, I panicked," says Jeanie Wickes, a passenger on the train who lives in Dix Hills. "I thought maybe he had a heart attack, he was sick or maybe someone highjacked the train."
The LIRR says it's investigating the incident. The company plans to reimburse riders who faced additional travel expenses.
