An irate MRT commuter was caught on camera demanding compensation from a fellow passenger who accidentally dropped her phone on the other commuter’s leg.

A video capturing the incident – which reportedly occurred on a Downtown Line train, last Thursday around 6.50pm – has been circulating on WhatsApp. According to the eyewitness who took the video, the dispute began when a female commuter dropped her mobile phone on the leg of a commuter who was standing in the train.

The latter became enraged and demanded compensation from the one who dropped the phone. In the video, the angry commuter can be seen trying to grab the other commuter as she demands, “Give me your ID.”

The person who dropped the phone kept repeating that it was an accident but the irate commuter raged on. She rants and says in part:

“If I have medical expenses, you pay for my medical bill ok?…That day in Serangoon MRT, a woman hit me until my leg was bandaged for three months, I have $500 bill, you know?…Now I don’t care. You give me your ID and you pay for my medical expenses ok?”
“Your handphone hit me and I don’t raise my voice ah?…Even if it’s an accident on the road ah, a car hit accidentally, also have to pay insurance…My leg is suddenly pain down there, you know?”

Another commuter tried to calm the situation but was told to shut up by the angry woman. The indignant commuter was heard telling the third party:

“And you shut up leh, you not even involved there, what witness are you? False witness ah?…Remove your shoes, hit on your leg, I see how you react…And you get up immediately there and shut up there ah you.”

The eyewitness reported that even though the person who dropped the phone and the third party had already left the train as it reached Hillview MRT station, the woman continued the tirade and said aloud: “this is the third time already I have this nonsense…you think I don’t dare to bring up to higher authorities ah?”
