Man hurt in chaos after metal falls off MRT station escalator


SINGAPORE – A piece of metal that came off an escalator in Jurong East MRT station last night (March 5) caused commuters to flee in panic.

Stomp contributor Faizal said in a phone interview that a man hurt his knee in the chaos that ensued.

Mr Faizal recounted: “A piece of metal came off an escalator at Jurong East MRT station yesterday night at about 9pm plus.

“It was very chaotic because the escalator was still moving and everyone, young and old, all tried to rush down.

“A man was injured on the knee and SMRT staff tended to him.

“It could have been worse.”

Mr Faizal said he left the scene shortly after.
