Chinese railway police said Tuesday that they had conducted an investigation into a woman obstructing a high-speed train, delaying its departure in eastern China's Anhui Province.

A short video clip showing the woman preventing a high-speed train door from closing sparked controversy on the Internet. In the video, the woman refuses to move despite the order of train conductors.

The incident occurred last Friday in Hefei, capital of Anhui. The G1747 train heading to Guangzhou was delayed.

The woman, surnamed Luo, said she did that because she wanted to wait for her husband who was running late.

Luo has been suspended from her job as a teacher at a local primary school.

According to Chinese law, those who illegally obstruct trains, ships, planes or other modes of transport, and affect their normal operation, will face warnings or fines under 200 yuan (30 U.S. dollars).

In severe circumstances, violators can receive five to 10 days detention and heavier penalties.
