There was some drama downtown yesterday afternoon when a monorail coach suddenly stopped on the tracks due to a malfunction. It happened in Brickfields in front of Wisma Monorail and near Siew Dor apartments as reported yesterday.
A total of 183 people were left stranded for close to an hour before they were rescued by firemen using two Skylift cranes.
Three passengers, including a pregnant woman, reportedly fainted when the air-conditioning system failed due to a power loss.
The two-car train, which was packed with people commuting to the city, stalled at around 2pm yesterday after leaving the Tun Sambathan station.
