Woman who held high-speed train for husband faces fines

A woman on a high-speed train in East China was caught on video blocking the carriage doors and preventing it from departing, all while screaming at conductors that her husband was late and on his way, media reported.

Police have taken the woman surnamed Luo in for questioning, who faces up to 2,000 yuan (0) in fines, China Youth Daily reported.

The nearly 4-minute video shows the woman in a grey coat, later identified as surnamed Luo, struggling to stay between the doors as railway workers try to force her onto the platform at Hefei Railway Station in Anhui Province on Friday.

Her young daughter can be seen standing calmly on the platform as Luo and railway workers tussle back and forth on the Guangzhou-bound G1747.

"I am waiting for my husband! He's already at the turnstile!" Luo yells while apparently on the phone with her husband. "I'll go as soon as he's here!"

"You either go off the train or you take a seat, ma'am," said one crew member, "We're leaving soon and you can't stand here."

However, conductors seemed helpless as the woman stood her ground.

At one point Luo falls to the platform, only to stick her foot in the door before they had a chance to close the door.

"This is a high-speed train and not your property, you must follow the rules," a crew member told Luo.

Passengers could be heard scolding the woman as tensions heightened. "You are violating the law, do you understand?" one comments in the video.

"Ask other people! Do they want to wait for you?" said another.

Despite Luo's disturbance, the train had managed to leave on time just before its scheduled 15-minute stop in Hefei ended, according to Anhui Radio FM 90.8.

"Guangzhou Railway Bureau is responsible for the G1747 and we are looking into the matter," Hefei Railway Police told Beijing Youth Daily.
