Mumbai: Hundreds of monorail commuters recently had a near miss in Mumbai when two trains came face-to-face on the same track at Chembur.

On Saturday evening, the two trains, moving in opposite directions, came close to a collision after one of them stopped functioning due to a power failure. No casualties or injuries reported yet.

The officials immediately came into action by sending another train from Wadala depot to rescue passengers.

Since, monorail trains have no partitions, all passengers had to deboard at the platform from the rear gate. Passengers and the engine drivers were helped out of the train onto the platform of Chembur station.

The maintenance work is underway and will be completed in another three hours. From Monday the monorail trains will run as per their schedules.

Mumbai's monorail has faced several disruptions due to technical failures in the past.
