Making rounds on social media is a clip showing the door of an LRT suddenly closing after boarding and dropping passengers in a station. Netizen Seemon Florano uploaded the video on Facebook and immediately went viral. According to Florano, the incident occurred last September 20 around 1:00 p.m. in the afternoon at the Vito Cruz Station.
The video garnered 2 million views and shared thousands of times over the internet. The clip has drawn comparisons to the hit horror movie “Train To Busan”, with Florano stating that the experience was even more creepy than the movie, according to his caption.
“Sabi nila nakakatakot daw ang Train to Busan. Di ko pa kase napanood. Pero sigurado ako na nakakatakot itong nasaksihan ko. ##LRT #LRTA #TrainToBaclaran,”
Rochelle Gamboa, corporate communications head of the Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) revealed that necessary action was taken that same day to fix the defective train door while also reminding passengers to avoid placing their hands on the train doors to avoid any accident.
