Incidents and accidents
- A catenary wire broke near Kamuning station, where a southbound train headed from this station was stranded, forcing the passengers inside the train to walk to that station. Service was suspended from Shaw Boulevard to North Avenue, with commuters also asking whether the incident was purely mechanical or incidental, as some claim that the malfunctions were used to justify the MRTC's call for higher fares.
- Policemen stopped the man who was about to jump from the roof of the MRT station. The man told reporters that he attempted to end his life because no one has taken care of him. The man said that he is homeless.
- One person was injured after a commotion broke out and sent people on one escalator falling on top of each other. The still unidentified man allegedly shouted incoherent phrases prompting passengers to head to the exits in panic.
