Man injured at Sengkang MRT, metal piece dangles from ceiling

Posted on 17 December 2011

Just when you think the situation couldn’t get any worse…

 

An unidentified man was apparently left sprawling on the floor covered in blood, after a metal piece from the ceiling had collapsed and struck him. Either that, or he simply fell from a height while working on the 2nd floor, grabbing the metal piece as he fell, as what a reader pointed out. These grainy pictures were posted on Temasek Review’s Facebook Page, and were reportedly taken today at close to 3pm.

Details are still unclear, but we’ll update this article as more information comes in. We do not know if the man is alright. Sengkang MRT is within the Northeast line, which is managed by SBS Transit, while the North South line and East West line are managed by SMRT.

Singaporeans have been extremely pissed off by three consecutive breakdowns in our much-lauded subway network, all of which happened within the span of a week.

To add insult to injury, a bus even broke down while transporting stranded passengers from Bishan MRT to Toa Payoh MRT this morning.

It looks like the government had better start sending in Buddhist monks and Catholic priests to walk the tunnels and unjinx our transport network, just like they did for Bedok resevoir, where a recent spate of apparent suicides spooked Singaporeans.

But so far, no spirits have stepped forward to claim responsibility for the breakdowns.

    Metal ceiling systems can be fixed to an existing
    ceiling or substrate, or suspended in a grid system. Suspended ceilings have
    the advantage of allowing you to easily hide ductwork, wiring, and so forth.
    Suspended metal ceilings make use of grids, which can be fully concealed or
    exposed, depending on the look that you wish to achieve.
