Dead train on Newburyport line

My (already late) Commuter rail train from Newburyport came to a stop on a superelevated curve near Chelsea for about 5 minutes and I came pretty close to having a panic attack over it. Felt like we were going to tip right over. Seriously, not cool! They finally just let us know that there's a dead train in front of us that we need to push into Boston.

As I was writing this, our power went out. So there's now possibly 2 dead trains on this line.
