Gov. Cuomo calls for first responder training after Penn Station stampede
Gov. Andrew Cuomo is calling for first responder training after a stampede in Penn Station left several injured.
Police say 16 people were hurt after panicked passengers ran for cover in Penn Station Friday night.
It happened after an Amtrak officer used a Taser gun on a disorderly man.
The governor says the incident is proof emergency responders need to be trained in dealing with a panicked public.
"The first responders have to be trained not to panic. And they need to be trained how to now handle a public that is very antsy, it's a totally new world that we live in. A world where terrorism is real possibility," says Gov. Cuomo.
No gunshots were fired at Penn Station.
