A giant drill bit narrowly missed drilling right through a packed subway car in Queens Thursday morning.
The machinery, being used for the East Side Access project, was being operated by a contractor above ground near the 21st St. Station in Long Island City.
The drill bit, measuring 10 inches in diameter, broke through the tunnel’s roof at about 11:45 a.m., grazing the top and side of an ‘F’ train with approximately 800 people aboard, according to the MTA.
No one was injured, and passengers were led to the station via a relief train.
Construction work has since been suspended in the area pending an investigation by the MTA.

This is why I don't ride MTA death trains.
Oh come on. What's wrong with an incompetent construction worker trying to have some fun?
That thing could have peeled open a subway car like a sardine can.
Deja vu - Could it have been operated by Benny of Total Recall?
Where can I get that size drill bit? Home Depot's no help.
I've heard of getting screwed in NYC before. but not like this.
Is this the work of an incompetent contractor, or an Arts for Transit installation titled, "Screwed by the MTA"? - Andrew
Is there a drill bigger to open the MTA's books?
