Passengers aboard two Metro trains were evacuated Wednesday afternoon after the trains lost power. A person was spotted trespassing on the Metro tracks around the time of the power failure, a spokesman said.

The trains lost power shortly after 1 p.m. between 7th Street and the Westlake/MacArthur Park station. All riders evacuated safely to the station, and service resumed at about 2 p.m., said Metro spokesman Dave Sotero.

Trains are experiencing delays of about 20 minutes, but Sotero said service should catch up by rush hour.
