Contagious panic

This video went viral on Chinese social media.

A man started running to get off a subway in Shenzhen, in southern Guangdong Province.

Other passengers, not knowing what was happening, followed him and rushed out of the train.

But nothing suspicious was found in the train — the panic was for nothing.

The crew advised that passengers should first use the intercom to talk to the crew before panicking in such circumstances.
