San Francisco Muni to Inspect Its Doors After Another Mishap

The San Francisco Muni is scrambling to conduct emergency inspections of its trains after another door mishap Tuesday, NBC Bay Area’s Investigative Unit learned.

In just over a month, a second woman’s wrist was caught in a door from inside a train. On April 12, video showed a woman getting dragged onto the tracks after her hand got stuck between the closing doors of a train.

She filed a claim against the city of San Francisco claiming she suffered several broken ribs, a collapsed lung and spinal fractures.
