MANILA, Philippines – A video shows a man forcing open the doors of a train after it left the station.
“We will trace this, we will spread this along the line to be recognized by our tellers so they can report where he usually boards,” PNR Acting Operations Manager Jocelyn Geronimo said.
The train was an Electric Multiple Unit or EMU type which was donated by Japan
It can be easily opened since it is a fire safety feature of the coach for easy exit of passengers in case of emergency inside the train.
The Philippine National Railways (PNR) management admits, they have shortcomings in the incident. They are also puzzled as to why not even a single train personnel reported the event which they only saw on social media.
For the PNR management, this incident may not only endanger the man who forcibly opened train doors but also those passengers inside the public transportation.
The PNR warns passengers of possible consequences if they violate train safety regulation
For now, the management is looking into the possible case that can be filed against those who violate the standards.
“It can cause damage to PNR property. This is so unfair and awful for those innocent passengers alongside him who may be involved,” Geronimo said.
In line with this—PNR will also investigate train personnel who may be negligent during the incident. – Mai Bermudez | UNTV News & Rescue
