Keihin Tohoku Line During the operation meeting, passengers get off the train door opening track July 31 at 12:01 p.m.
On the morning of the 31st, near JR Kamata Station in Tokyo, a passenger on the Keihin Tohoku Line, who had been suspended due to a personal accident, opened the door by operating an emergency doorcock and got off the track.
According to JR East, the Keihin Tohoku Line was suspended from driving to the north and south between Omiya Station and Yokohama Station due to a personal accident that occurred at Nippori Station in Tokyo just after 8 a.m. on the 31st, but about 15 minutes after the suspension of operation, a man of a passenger got off the railroad tracks from a train that had stopped near Kamata Station.
The man was immediately noticed and the man was protected because he operated a “doorcock” that manually opened the door in an emergency.
There were no injuries.
The reason for getting off the train is not clear, but JR East has called for the use of doorcocks without permission except in emergencies.
