A coroner’s inquiry revealed today that 2 driverless LRTs had run over Malaysian Ang Boon Tong who had drunkenly stumbled and fallen onto the tracks at Fajar LRT Station train platform after midnight, at 12.40am, on 24 March this year.

The train service controller in the operation control room did not spot Ang’s fall, instead occupied by the 22 monitors in front of her showing movements of the station that was about to close for the day.

The 43-year-old victim had stumbled onto the tracks but was conscious enough to sit up and roll to his left. Unfortunately, he could not move out of the way before the first train pulled up at the station and ran over him.

The sole passenger of the train, an SMRT staff member, reported that he heard a sound but did not stop to investigate.

10 minutes later, another train ran over Ang, at which point another SMRT staff member noticed the train’s carriage jerking upwards. That staff member was the one who spotted Ang’s body and notified the control centre.

Paramedics pronounced Ang dead due to multiple injuries at 2.20am. The father leaves behind three children between the ages of 9 and 17.
