Blackout and chaos
• Without warning, the MRT train jerked to a halt and everything turned pitch dark. Panic invaded the carriage I was in. Some of the commuters screamed at the top of their voice and burst into tears. Fear ripped into my lungs, robbing me off all oxygen. I could hear my own pulses and my heart palpitating with the chilling fear that was setting in. The carriage was soon abuzz with nervous chatters and some lights from mobile phones illuminated the carriage.
• The train came into a sudden halt. The light in the carriage started flickering and the whole train was engulfed in darkness.
• The train was plunged into total darkness! The train was in total chaos and fear snaked around my heart as I adjust to the darkness.
