It has only been a few months since the LRT Kelana Jaya collision that left Malaysians speechless and families permanently traumatised.

To jog your memory, the collision happened between two trains due to a miscommunication at the control centre. 47 people suffered serious injuries, 166 faced minor injuries, 6 passengers were warded in the ICU and 3 required ventilators.

While Malaysia has a long line of train mishaps spanning over a decade, the community hoped that the jolt of the most recent collision would put an end to these harmful accidents.

Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case.

A video posted by Twitter user @perksofbeingsxf went viral where she was seen riding in a train that had its door open while at full speed.

Watch it below:

While the train seemed to be mostly empty, passengers inside the train were recording the incident and the user looked to be in a state of panic.

Rapid KL’s customer support account on Twitter reached out to the user and asked for details of the train. She couldn’t remember the train number but it was a train that was making its way from Ara Damansara to Lembah Subang at 3pm yesterday (July 26).

Since RapidKL was initially tagged in the post, they have since acknowledged this occurrence and put out a statement.

According to Rapid KL, the train was taken out of service less than 2 minutes later when it reached LRT Lembah Subang Station that was located about 900 metres away from LRT Ara Damansara Station.

Thankfully, there were only 7 passengers on board and none sustained any injuries. At the time of writing, the cause is yet to be identified.
