People in Beijing Have to Fight to Get Off the Subway

By

When you watch this video of a typically insane day at the Xierqi subway station in Beijing, keep your eyes on the man in white. At about 28 seconds in, he attempts to exit the train from the door closest to the camera. For the next few seconds, he struggles to overcome the crush of commuters boarding the train, as if walking out to sea against the waves. At 33 seconds in, he is pushed back into the depths of the train, and disappears. Then, at 37 seconds in, we briefly see him surge through the doors once again before the camera moves away. Did he ever successfully exit the train? Is he still on that train?

Treasure your comparatively orderly and uncrowded commute today and the fact that it does not resemble rugby.
