About 17,500 passengers were affected by this morning's MRT breakdown on the east-west line. SMRT told AsiaOne in a written statement that an east-bound train was disrupted due to a "train fault". Some westbound trains were turned around at Queenstown MRT Station while a few eastbound trains were turned around at Outram Park MRT Station in an attempt to maintain train service. Announcements were made in all stations and on affected trains to inform passengers of the delay. A spokesman from SMRT said that the Operations Control Centre was informed that two passengers were feeling unwell. They were both on board one of the trains near Tiong Bahru MRT Station. An ambulance was activated to be on standby at Tiong Bahru Station and both passengers were sent to the hospital.
