JR East said Friday that a train in Funabashi, Chiba prefecture, traveled 48 kilometers with one carriage door open after a cord from a passenger's rucksack became stuck in the mechanism and prevented it from closing.
According to NTV, the unusual incident on the Keiyo Line prompted JR East to continue to operate the train with its door open in an attempt to minimize disruption and delays. The door was covered with a curtain and a JR East employee was ordered to ride in the carriage and ensure passengers' safety.
The train ran 48 kilometers between Chiba and Tokyo, reaching a maximum speed of 100 kph. No injuries were reported.© Japan Today
