The MRT train service stopped twice within 90 minutes after separate reports of people falling into the tracks were reported. Apparently, it was reported that someone fell into the tracks at Kranji MRT station, but staff were unable to find anyone on the tracks. Soon after, there was another report of someone falling onto the tracks at Marsiling and he lost part of his leg as a result of this.

Hmm… scary.

TWO MRT stations in the north on Tuesday were disrupted following separate reports of a man’s fall onto the tracks.

At 9.43am, the southbound train service between Yew Tee and Woodlands was disrupted when the train driver spotted someone falling onto the tracks at Kranji station, a Singapore Mass Rapid Transit spokesman said.

The authorities could not find anyone after an extensive search of the area.

Normal train services resumed at 10.53am, but within minutes, it was disrupted again when witnesses saw a man fall onto the tracks at the Marsiling MRT station, one stop away from Kranji MRT station.

The man, believed to be in his 40s, lost part of his leg after being hit by the train and was rushed to National University Hospital. — TNP
