“[The] fault was detected on the train so passengers had to be unloaded for safety,” LRT-1 Head of Corporate Communications Rochelle Gamboa told INQUIRER.net in a text message.
Gamboa explained that “low pressure” could cause a train to stop.
“Low pressure. These are 30-year-old trains. If pressure goes down, trains will stop. Before that happens, [the] train operator took precaution and facilitated [the] transfer of passengers to another train,” Gamboa said.
The LRT-1 continued operations after the incident. (Editor: Eden Estopace)
