The busiest section of Metro Line 2 in Madrid was shut down on the morning of December 2 after a child’s aluminium foil balloon touched high voltage electricity cables above the track and caught fire, causing a power-cut.
Sol station was closed for an hour between 7.15am and 8.15am, and five of the capital´s busiest stations from Banco de España to Santo Domingo Banco had no service.
The incident happened on the launch day of Madrid’s new ‘Scenario One’ initiative. The initiative encourages more people to use public transport.
