A subway train apparently rear-ended a stationary one at Sangwangsimni Station, Line 2, leaving 170 with slight injuries.
According to the government (make of that what you will), many of the injuries came from passengers disobeying orders:
One subway car was derailed and passengers walked a short distance along the tracks to the station, YTN television said.
Many of the injuries were caused by passengers jumping from the subway cars onto the tracks, a government emergency official said.
An onboard announcement initially told passengers to stay inside, but most people ignored it and forced the doors open to escape, he said.
Can’t wait for that to be spun culturally.
A friend of mine sent me a tweet with an image of passengers walking along the rails:
