We were dead wrong.
In a minute-long video posted by student James Cubelo, a fairly packed LRT train was shown with its doors wide open.
Cubelo said he recorded the video on Thursday after boarding the train at the Central Station at around 6 p.m.
"Sumakay kami ng friend ko sa LRT1 from Central Station. Napansin namin na hindi nag-close ang door pero tumatakbo na, nagulat na lang kami nung sinabi ni manong guard na kumapit na lang kami ng mabuti, ano 'to! Star City lang ang peg, ganun!" he wrote.
But it doesn't end there, he uploaded a second video of the same incident where the doors of the LRT were again—you guessed it—wide open. Only this time around the train was really packed and they were even with foreign students who were near the edge of the doors.
Cubelo for his part ended his post by calling the attention of the LRT management to address the incident.
"Dear LRT Management, di po ako nagmamadaling makita ang bagong tren na nabili nyo, o makasakay man dito. Sa pagkakataong ito, isa lang po ang hinihiling ko, SAFETY, di lang para sa akin, kundi para sa aming lahat na sumasakay, at patuloy na sasakay sa LRT line 1. maraming salamat po!" he wrote.
