Dozens of Bangkokians were forced to walk on the Airport Rail Link’s tracks this morning as they were evacuated from a train to another due to a power outage.
At 9am this morning, the Airport Rail Link transferred an entire crowded train to another train by foot between Makkasan and Ramkhamhaeng station, after the train had stopped working and they had spent an hour trying to fix the problem without success.
Some passengers reportedly fainted as they were crammed on the crowded train with limited oxygen.
All passengers arrived safely at Hua Mark station. The Airport Rail Link is currently closed until they are able to clear all the passengers in its system, according to a Spring News journalist.
The Airport Rail Link, which is operated by State Railway of Thailand’s subsidiary SRT Electrified Train, has not yet issued an official statement to explain the incident.
