Passengers on the Hong Kong MTR were ‘shocked’ when a little girl squatted and urinated in the middle of the carriage while her mother looked on impassively, SCMP reports.
The incident occurred at about 8.15pm on an eastbound train on the Island Line, said one passenger, a Mr R. Dunn, who declined to give his first name.
The woman and the girl were travelling with a boy who appeared to be about six years old. The three, who were heard speaking Putonghua, got off the train at Causeway Bay station. The incident comes after a video clip showing a couple allowing their child to defaecate in an MTR station went viral in April.
Dunn said the girl just pulled down her trousers and crouched to urinate.
R Dunn, piss policeman, said he’d already remonstrated with the mother about letting her son eat a sausage roll despite signs prohibiting eating food on board.
“People were shocked. Like did that really just happen?” said Dunn. “You hear about it, but I never thought it would just happen in front of me. But worst of all, they made an insignificant attempt to wipe it up and hurried off at Causeway Bay.”
An MTR spokesperson pointed out to the SCMP that public toilets are available in 41 of the MTR’s 84 stations, or, in other words, less than half of them. Also: kids have to pee sometimes, get over it.
