Accident prompts BTS to look into screen option

After a woman fell onto the tracks at Mor Chit BTS station on Tuesday, a top BTS executive said the company would look into putting up platform screens at all Skytrain stations.

Anat Arbhabhirama, chairman of the service's management committee, said platform screen doors had been installed at nine BTS stations but it had yet to install them at the Mor Chit station because it was going to be extended. After this accident, he said, the company would certainly consider putting up platform screens at all stations.

The woman identified as Warunrat Kanpan "Dew", an entertainment anchor for Channel 3, sustained slight injuries to her leg and hip.

Anat said guards at the station were able to turn off the electricity, suspend the service and remove Warunrat from the tracks before sending her to Kasemrat Prachachuen Hospital. Warunrat said she lost her balance because of dizziness.
