New York train rider reports suspicious packages, turn out to be machines used to report suspicious packages

A train rider at a New York station on Monday noticed some suspicious packages sitting around, so did their civic duty and reported it to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority through a special intercom system designed to report such incidents.

The 6-foot-tall packages, however, weren't suspicious — and contained the very technology used to report questionable events... such as suspicious items lying around a train station.

The boxes at the Metro-North New Rochelle station, located around 25 miles northeast of New York City, contained machines hosting the MTA's Help Point System, described as "a new technology program that puts subway customers in touch with Transit personnel via an interactive communications device."
