The MTA now says it is not to blame for the incident that left two dozen passengers stranded in a subway car for nine hours during the 2010 Christmas blizzard.

Originally, the agency said it forget about the train during the storm.

But now, the New York Post is reporting that the MTA says the incident was an "act of God."

The move comes after some of the passengers aboard the train filed a lawsuit.
