Passengers of a northbound Metro Rail Transit (MRT)-3 train were forced to walk in the middle of Guadalupe bridge in Makati City after the train suffered from an alleged “system failure.”

Fritz Martin, one of the passengers in the train, told INQUIRER.net that the train stopped at around 6:30 p.m. between Guadalupe and Boni stations.
