Hello Kitty Strap Halts Trains
(Via Japanprobe.com): The Japanese press is reporting that a train was brought to a halt on the Osaka loop line last night around 7:55PM , after the warning lights indicated that the train’s doors were not closing properly. The source of the problem was a 2cm Hello Kitty doll, which had become detached from a cell phone strap and jammed itself between the doors. After an 18 minute delay, the Hello Kitty was removed and service on the loop line resumed. An estimated 20,000 passengers were influenced by the delay.
