A Tweet from this morning:
Roosevelt island tram stuck!! NYPD below trying a rescue!
No, that's not what is happening.

According to the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC):
Please be advised from approximately 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. today, June 15th, NYPD is performing practice drills at the Tram. Service will not be interrupted during the training.
More information on Roosevelt Island Tram Rescue Drills from previous posts here.

UPDATE 2:30 PM - Some scenes from today's NYPD Roosevelt Island Rescue Drill.

and the vehicles to take the NYPD  officers back to their stations.


Earlier in the day, the NYPD officers were rappelling from the Tram Cabin to a boat in the East River. In the event that the Tram gets stuck over the East River and all of the many back up systems intended to bring the cabin back to one of the stations don't work, Tram riders will be evacuated by rope to a waiting boat in the East River, just like that do it in Portland Oregon.

Definitely a false alarm! Just tweeted an All clear pic as well!

What alarm? They're practicing, so that in the small event of an emergency, they can be ready. I think that's great... Especially because service was never interrupted.
