At about 3:20 pm, a train running on the Nanjing Metro Line No. 2 suddenly broke down. The train slowed down and occasionally stopped when it was close to the Shanghai Road station. The stranded commuters got out of the train safely after a complete stop of the train at Xinjiekou station.

The service center at the station immediately sent two buses to transport trapped commuters, evacuated around 400 commuters and refunded their tickets. After the breakdown, only parts of Line No. 2 were running. During the rush hours, metro station workers had to guide commuters to board the train in order.
