"Sad" and "embarrassing" do not at all describe the situation accurately. The incident could have been tragic, with lives lost. We know that the trains run on rails that carry electricity. Water and electricity don't mix without causing a disaster.
The optimal train of 12 - 16 carriages can carry more than 1000 commuters from point A to point B for an average distance of 30km in less than 30 minutes.
