Woman hit, killed after falling onto Metro Line 6 track

A WOMAN died after falling onto the tracks of Shanghai's Metro Line 6 during morning rush hour today, causing a short delay.

The woman in her 30s fell onto the tracks just before a train pulled into Hangjin Road Station at 6:50am, the metro operator said.

It's unknown whether she accidentally fell or jumped onto the tracks to commit suicide.

The incident caused a delay of about 10 minutes and operation has returned to normal. An investigation is still underway.

Another glitch hit the city's Metro Line 9 this morning. The trains were running at a limited speed between Songjiang New Town Station and Middle Yanggao Road Station after the signaling system malfunctioned at 7:46am, the operator said.

Train intervals were extended to 8 minutes and passenger flows were temporarily restricted at several stations.

The glitch was fixed at 8:04am, the metro operator said.
