Eyewitnesses even claim they saw "ashes falling from the train track".

The eyewitnesses duakang or what?!

lapse in safety procedure?

They were supervised and the track access was authorized .....

This mishap would surely lay heavily on the conscience of all MRT commuters who demand immediate fixes and intolerant of delays.

These 2 precious lives could have been saved if commuters were not so demanding :(

Before the team is allowed to step back on to the trackway, the following procedure must be carried out: The team must coordinate with the Signal unit at the station for oncoming trains to be brought to a stop and to ensure that no trains enter the affected sector. SMRT records do not show that this procedure took place, it said.

Pasir Ris MRT station is a terminal station with two platforms. Trains arriving at Pasir Ris can berth at either platform. Trains can cross from one track to the other as they approach the station. In this accident, the train moving in automatic mode was routed to Platform 2. When the train captain saw staff on the track, he immediately applied emergency brakes but was unable to prevent the accident.



*haiz* procedural lapse ... seems like the attention to detail like LKY would have done is no longer a culture imbued in the younger generation now .... :(

Youngsters just want short-cuts ....  >:(

Friends and family attend funerals of SMRT staff

*haiz*  2 young lives ..... full of promise,  snuffed out in an instant due to lapse in safety procedures.

2 lives is too many but do think of the thousand of SMRT workers (including maintenance and engineering staff such as these 2 young chaps) who toil and sacrifice normal hours and put their lives on the line to ensure that commuters get around Singapore.

please think before you complain about MRT disruptions .... there are people behind the scenes around the clock trying to put things right,  the unsung heroes who work so that you and I get around hassle free.

SMRT should arrange therapy sessions for those who witnessed the incident.
