The incident occurred around 5:30 a.m. at the 86th Street station in Bay Ridge when a portion of the tile wall fell onto the tracks as a train was coming into the station, and MTA spokesperson said.

The motorman applied the emergency brakes, and all passengers were detrained in a normal fashion, the spokesperson said.

No injuries were reported, and the crews are onsite to fix the situation.

The R, N, and D trains have been rerouted due to debris on the tracks.

Southbound R trains are stopping along the D line from 36th Street (Brooklyn) to 9 Ave then ending. Some southbound R trains will end at Whitehall Street-South Ferry.

N trains are stopping along the R line in both directions from DeKalb Avenue to Canal Street.
