On Thursday night (3 November 2016), netizen serverxeon posted on the popular hardwarezone forum that he nearly died after he leaned against the MRT door which opened during a trip on the Circle Line between Buona and Holland.
He uploaded a video of the purported partially opened MRT door on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=geWgZ2ngFbk) as evidence of his claims.
When he tried to make a report on this dangerous fault through the SMRT hotline, he found that it was only opened till 6pm and couldn't report the incident.
If this incident is found to be legitimate, this could be a serious breach of SMRT's security protocol which endangers the lives of riding commuters. Coming on the back of 2 serious MRT breakdowns on the Circle Line, the day just couldn't get any worse for beleaguered SMRT Corp.
