A female student from Nanyang JC fell into the platform gap at Hougang MRT station and caused a service disruption on the North-East Line yesterday.

This happened at around 7.50am yesterday morning. According to the student, she was not pushed and had simply slipped into the gap “in a moment of carelessness”.

This incident caused a disruption of more than an hour along the North-East Line, with some commuters choosing to take buses instead.

Luckily, the girl has since updated that she had no other serious injuries besides a dislocated kneecap.

We would like to remind all readers to always mind the gap!
