A bucket full of live eels spilled out mid-commute on Shanghai Metro’s Line 1 last Friday, resulting in dozens of the slippery creatures wriggling through one of the cars.
The eels were liberated from their plastic confines moments after the subway departed Shanghai Indoor Stadium. An image was posted to Weibo by web user 你大爷爱LP嘿巴扎嘿, who said he was worried for skirt-wearing female commuters.
We’ve got to say, though, the atmosphere appeared relatively panic-free despite the various slimy creatures seen slithering past passengers’ feet.
Most likely, passengers have just grown accustomed to strange sightings on the Shanghai Metro.
