Metro checks platform screen doors after glass breaks

METRO operator today reported two separate cases of mysterious cracking of screen doors in two subway stations and has ordered its technicians to check every station for flawed glass shields.

A screen door broke itself about 5am today at the Laoximen Station of Line 10, causing no injury. A similar accident occurred last Friday and startled a crowd of passengers.

Metro operator didn't explain yet whether the glass cracked because of quality problem or because of the high temperature.

The management said the glass used in the screen doors, designed to prevent people from falling off the platform, are safer than normal glass and can break into pointless smithereens if smashed.
