Boston, MA - In what passengers called "some kind of a mental breakdown," witnesses claim to have heard the conductor on an Orange Line car make unusual announcements yesterday.

"I took my headphones out of my ears when he said, 'I'm being tortured. I need help!' and everyone ran off the train," said one individual who claimed to have been on the train in question.

According to sources, Transit Police approached the conductor at around 8:00 a.m. on Monday morning in response to reports of the odd behavior. The man was allegedly escorted away by the police, and the MBTA provided a replacement conductor, though the incident may have been connected to delays.

The supposed witness went on to say, "It made a lot more sense when he made it clear that he was asking the MBTA for help, and they weren't responding, but for a moment, there was a real panic."
