Xierqi station on Beijing Subway’s Line 13 last Thursday morning at around 7:30.

It has, like other stations in Beijing’s vast underground transportation network, built-in artificial bottlenecks intended to relieve congestion in the form of gates and narrow staircases. On some occasions, however, those fail.
