After the government announced the free RapidKL rides for 1 month earlier last week, the public are still concerned over certain issues like the train frequencies and crowd control management. There are those who pointed out that lifts and escalators at certain stations still need fixing.
The Sri Rampai LRT station recently got their escalator fixed (finally) after being broken for so long. Happy news right? But some men (or teen) just want to see the world burn. Apparently, a teenager decided to do something to the escalator that would make anyone go berserk (especially on a bad day). Here’s what happened:
A CCTV footage of the Sri Rampai LRT station was uploaded by Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur on Facebook yesterday (Monday, 20th June) where we can see a group of teenage boys going down the stairs but one of them decided to go and press the emergency stop button on the escalator.
According to the caption on the video, the escalator was just recently fixed and fully operational again for everyone’s convenience. However, this teenager decided to make everyone’s lives harder by making them believe it’s still broken. The admin categorised the boy’s action as vandalism as it could cause the escalator to be broken again if the button was not used properly.
“We’re not sure what the teenager’s intentions are but what he did is considered vandalism,” the admin wrote. The Facebook post got netizens heated up that they expressed their frustrations and disappointment in the comments section with many asking for appropriate action to be taken against the teenager.
So far, there has been no further updates by the Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur Facebook page regarding the situation nor do we have any info if authorities have been contacted to investigate the case. Either way, we hope nothing like this happens again and that people can use the facilities without anyone vandalising them.
