Where is Superman when we need him?

SupermanWhere lah?… Where is Superman when you need him?

Thankfully no one was hurt in the accident when our Light Rail Transit (or aka LRT) with its six coaches overshot its station and crashed into the buffer stop and was left precariously dangling 25 metres from the ground. The train, belonging to the Ampang Line (formerly known as Star-LRT) was empty save for the driver when the incident occurred at 7.11am yesterday.

DANGLING DANGER: A coach of the Rapid KL Ampang LRT line dangling 25m above the ground after the train overshot the end of the track at the Sentul Timur station in Kuala Lumpur on Friday morning. There was only a driver on board when the accident occurred at 7.11am. The station was closed for 20 minutes but train services were not affected. — STARpic by ABDUL RAHMAN SENIN

Thankfully the LRT Train was empty, with the exception of the driver. He just dropped off all the passengers at the last station. But i guess we could have used Superman to prevent it from further crashing into the buffer. 

A further report said that – A TNB worker close to the scene said it was fortunate that the train did not fall off completely because there was an electricity substation underneath the stabling area.  “If it had struck the substation, it would probably have exploded,” he said. 

So … where is Superman when we need him?

  2. Actually, I automatically equate unstoppable trains to Spiderman these days. We shall leave Superman fighting bigger problems that Spidey can’t handle.. 🙂

  4. Man.. i guess that shows my age! For me growing up .. it was always SUPERMAN saving the day… saving the runaway train, the runaway car … etc

    Not until i read your comments and come to realize.. oh yeah hor… Spiderman saved the Train from crashing too in his recent epic.

    Anyway … see another tragedy today – when the Bus crashed into a Flyover. Where art thou Superman?

    See the BUS crash into the Flyover.

    Thankfully again no one was hurt. Mebbe Superman will only come when its a train load or bus load of people! Anyway …. Superman, Spiderman .. or our own locally Cicakman … they should come and save the Day!
    Perhaps he could have whisked the bus
