A glass door at Hangzhou Railway Station was forcibly opened by passengers during an attempt to escape congestion on Saturday, the last day of China's Qingming Festival, or Tomb-Sweeping Day. Railway authorities have apologized and no injuries were reported.

A video circulating online showed a man forcefully opening a locked glass door at Hangzhou South Railway Station as a large number of people flooded the station.

The video quickly went viral online. Hangzhou railway authorities revealed that two trains arrived at the same time on Saturday night, leading to a large number of passengers trying to leave the station

A passenger even accidentally fell down an escalator while leaving the station. Station staff promptly activated the brake button, organizing passengers to quickly leave the area with no injuries reported.

Rail authorities also apologized for the temporary chaos, and vowed to strengthen organization for future peaks.

Following the incident, media quoted staff from the station as saying that a music concert in the city led to the large number of passengers amassed at the station.
