Power and sense go out on Metro

There was a minor power outage on the Metro yesterday, and in a separate incident a passenger jumped onto the track to retrieve his phone.

The electric power from an overhead cable between Metro Line 2’s Shanghai Science and Technology Museum and Century Avenue stations was tripped off at 11:10am, causing a blackout on a train, said the Shentong Metro Group.

Passengers were evacuated without incident at Century Avenue. According to the initial investigation, the incident was most probably caused by a short circuit.

Meanwhile, a man jumped onto the track of Metro Line 9 at Sheshan Station to retrieve a cellphone he had dropped.

The man initially asked an attendant for help but had been told it was only safe to search for the phone after operations ceased at night.

He then asked the attendant to help him locate the phone but when the screen doors were opened he jumped down.

The station attendant had to push an emergency button to stop trains.

The man was quickly pulled out but eight trains were delayed. He was later taken away by the police.
