Posted by temasektimes on May 25, 2012
Besides unidentified fluids on the seats of SMRT trains, commuters now have to be careful of another hazard in SMRT trains – ‘automatic’ shattering glass panels.
A commuter Jaykay Zhang was shocked when a glass panel shattered on its own in a SMRT train without anybody touching it:
“I was sitting at the other end of the bench when I heard the loud shatter. At that moment, no one was standing anywhere close to the glass panel neither did any lean on that panel. An elderly Chinese couple was sitting on… reserved seats by the panel when the glass shattered. Both of them were in shock… When the train reached Admiralty, the two of them rushed off to the platform. I was the one that went forward to the emergency call button and activated staff.”
