The incident was caused by electrical failure in the train’s motor as its sub-components (i.e. main chopper, regulator, insulator) were worn-out, the management explained.

Affected passengers were loaded in the next train which arrived seven minutes later.

The MRT-3 management vowed to implement preventive maintenance and replace defective electrical components. (Editor: Eden Estopace)
