Passenger Smashes Window on Sauna-Like Train After Breakdown

Passenger Smashes Window on Sauna-Like Train After Breakdown
A passenger heading from Wuchang in Wuhan to Shanghai decided to smash a window when his train turned into a sauna after it broke down just five minutes into its journey. Mr. Li used an on-board safety hammer to make a hole as his wife became giddy and his daughter started to cry after stewing for 30 minutes in torrid heat caused by the ceased AC system and summer weather. Eventually, the doors were opened, with the fault finally being repaired almost two hours after the train set off. The Wuhan Railway Bureau has since apologized, with many netizens supporting the actions of Mr. Li.

      I was wondering why it did not load.

        Ow, it also expired more than a year ago.

    In further news, almost all food, air, soil and water are poisonous. But lets not try to catch the bad guys or fix the problems; test for toxins or brainstorm solutions. Lets talk about train dude instead to soothe our fears of ailing health and planet.

    I have been keeping track of the weather in a couple Chinese cities. While the days don’t seem too much worse than cities in the US at the corresponding latitude, the night time temperatures look murderously hot. Add some humidity and a crowd and, I don’t blame that guy for busting the window. The train company did seem very quick and efficient to fix the broken air.

      Wuhan is ridiculously hot and humid in the summer. I wouldn’t want to be stuck on some crowded stuffy hot train there for 30 minutes. Totally don’t blame him either.

    Absolutely the right thing do. Trains are only a tool. They are made to serve us human beings. Besides, replacing a window costs next to nothing for these giant train companies.
