NBC 4 in New York recently featured a report on a disturbing trending involving doors on New Jersey trains flying open while the train is moving.
Why Are Doors on New Jersey Trains Flying Open While Trains Are Moving?
Reportedly, for the second time in less than a week, the safety bar on a NJ transit train was missing, leading to the train’s door flying open. The most recent incident involved the Northeast Corridor train. The incident happened while the train was traveling between Newark Penn Station and Trenton. While riding on the train, a passenger noticed that a door to the train was open. The passenger used his phone to record a video of the train traveling at a high-rate of speed with the door open and passengers standing nearby the dangerous opening.
After recording the video, the man then posted it on Twitter. NJ Transit responded to the tweet almost immediately. They asked the passenger for more information, and after he gave them the information, NJ Transit told him that they would have their team investigate the issue.
When NBC 4 contacted NJ Transit about the incident, they said that there should have been a safety bar in place to prevent the door from opening, but that the bar was missing and they believed it was because someone tampered with it. NJ Transit also told NBC 4 that they are continuing to investigate the incident.
