In S. Korea, a few years ago, a deranged man threw gasoline in the subway and lit it while it was moving. Many people died because the conductor stopped the train, locked the doors and ran away. The people were locked inside their subway cars. But the conductor could have turned the key and opened all the doors simultaneously. I wonder if that is possible on these trains. After that incident, all the trains were changed so that there was emergency information in both Korean and English, including how to get out of windows and doors. This should be done here too. Also, information should have been immediately given over the intercom system so that the people on the train did not panic, thinking it was an act of terrorism.
