Danger on Bangkok’s Skytrain


On the Skytrain there are signs warning you not to lean on the doors. Normally most people don’t take any notice as you are often so packed in that you have no choice. But passengers on the Skytrain this morning had the shock of their lives when the train stopped before fully reaching the station and the doors opened. Luckily no-one was hurt in the incident which lasted for several minutes.

Anat Arbhabhirama, director of the BMTS, said the computerised control room of the BTS lost connections with a train during a period of “malfunction” as it was approaching Siam station at 9.47am. According to a report in the Bangkok Post, the driver took control of the the train manually, but he failed to park the cars correctly, and opened the doors before some cars had entered the platform.
