    Thai tourists stranded mid-air as monorail stops working

    Thai tourists stranded mid-air as monorail stops working
    Saturday, April 27, 2013

    Bangkok: Twenty foreign and Thai tourists were stranded mid-air for an hour after an electric monorail stopped working at a zoo in Thailand's northern province of Chiang Mai frequented by several Indian visitors every month.

    A rescue basket was deployed to free the passengers from cars about 10 metres above the ground, Bangkok Post online said, adding that no one was injured.

    A preliminary investigation showed that a brake problem caused it to stop unexpectedly.

    The monorail, which was pressed into service in late 2007, can transport between 50 and 70 passengers at a time in air-conditioned cars.

    The nationalities of the foreigners were not announced.

    Should have charged the cunts 500 baht each to get down. I mean, c'mon, that's the entrepreneurial Thai spirit eh?

    and all of them want to go on the monorail at once

    I went on it when it was first opened and found it slow and boring

    The several Indians probably bought just one ticket and were all sitting in the same seat , which caused the mono rail to stop
