MTR train carrying passengers in Hong Kong derails for first time

An MTR train carrying passengers has derailed in Hong Kong for the first time, leading to a service suspension on the East Rail line.

Rail services between Mong Kok East and Hung Hom stations have been suspended after a carriage came off the track on Tuesday morning, the MTR Corporation said.

An MTR source has said no passengers were injured, but no official information was immediately available.

The train left Mong Kok East towards Hung Hom but a carriage derailed en route. The rail operator initially released information that the train was heading in the opposite direction.

Images circulating online showed passengers leaving the carriage, which stood across two sets of tracks, through a damaged train door. They were seen walking along the tracks to safety.
