Beijing Subway: Watch A Commuter Nightmare (Video)

This video of a Beijing Subway looks as if it might be going viral – nearly 500,000 views in a day.

It is thought that it was taken at the Xi’erqi station in Beijing. This is a relatively new station in the subway system, being only three years old. Ironically, it was opened to ease the congestion caused by passengers transferring between train lines.

The Beijing subway is just over 40 years old. It is the second longest subway system in the world; only the system in Seoul, South Korea, is longer. Each day it is used by something like 8.5 million people!

And “Rush Hour” on the Beijing Subway is as close as it gets to hell on earth! Just view the video for confirmation.
