In the afternoon, just before I left the office, we talked about the accident happened in Shanghai Metro yesterday. I didn’t know that until people told me.
A young man was stuck in the middle of the Metro door and the glass door on the platform. Since th door didn’t havoc sensor installed (Caution!!! Terrible to know that), the train started, and the man was squeezed to death immediately.
It is horrible. After many accidents that people was stuck in the middle, this is the first time metro caused death.
It is reported that the man carried 0.29g of drug. Many people don’t believe it, at least friends I chatted today, and believe it is the way the Metro Corp. remove responsibility from themselves.
My guess is:
1. The Metro Corp is trying to get out of this.
2. The drug rate in Shanghai has reached a critical mass, that drug can be found in a rare accident like this.
I tend to believe the former answer.
It is soooo… bad. Much worse than the typo in Metro.
So, do take care when taking metro. Remember, there is no sensor installed on the glass doors – unlike an elevator, and never try to save time to run into a metro train.
