Shocked victims describe sudden, chaotic violence

(Shanghai Daily)

08:36, September 28, 2011

Many victims were still in a state of shock well after yesterday's subway crash, after walking hundreds of meters through the narrow underground tunnel in the dark to reach the surface.

Chen Fengjun, 62, and Zhang Rui, both from Shanghai, were on their way to a tea party with friends when they experienced the shock of the crash.

"Everybody was thrown up and most hit the hand rails heavily," recalled Zhang, who suffered a bulge on her right forehead. She said she was still feeling dizzy and would go to the hospital by herself later.

The women were sitting in the lead carriage on the first train. It had parked for about 40 minutes before being run into by the following train.

Zhang said all the victims were asked to leave their phone numbers and names with the Metro authority before leaving, and those choosing to go hospitals on their own could deal with related issues later.

Chen said she saw at least 10 riders with bloody injuries inside her carriage. Noting that she was on the car "farthest from the collision point, it's terrible to imagine what took place around the rear end of the train."

Chen suffered cuts to her right leg and received first-aid by rescuers immediately after they emerged from the tunnel.
