Posted by temasektimes on April 12, 2012

SMRT trains along the East-West line were delayed for between 10 to 15 minutes due to a passenger’s leg being trapped in gap between the train and the platform at Clementi MRT station.

The incident happened at around 6.50pm in the evening. According to eye-witnesses, the 13 year old teenager was alighting from a west-bound MRT train when his right leg was stuck in the gap between the train and the platform.

One alert passenger pressed the emergency button on the train and SMRT staff called the SCDF which arrived in time to help rescue the distressed passenger who suffered abrasions to his right knee.
