UPDATE: A suspicious device found in the backpack of a man who jumped in front of a train in Queens Friday morning was deemed safe by the NYPD's bomb squad.

The as-yet-unidentified 68-year-old man jumped in front of the A train around 6:45 a.m. at 80th Street in Ozone Park, the NYPD said.

The department summoned the bomb squad and shut down the area after responders reported finding the "suspicious device" -- described as a pipe capped at both ends -- in his backpack.

It was later deemed safe.

The man was taken in critical condition to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in Richmond Hill, they said.
