Shanghai No. 10
27 September 2011

The accident is reminiscent of, although apparently less deadly than, the high-speed rail crash that happened in Wenzhou this July. In fact, it appears the same company may even have been responsible for the signaling system on both the Wenzhou train and the Shanghai subway (in both cases, the system appears to have failed). And the reaction of China’s social media is similar, too. Just like it did after the Wenzhou accident, Sina Weibo has exploded.
