Metro stations can get very crowded and it's a wonder that there aren't more injuries reported, especially during rush hour. With the populations in big cities like Guangzhou, it's easy to speculate how many crimes take place as well. We should all keep our nun chucks handy.

Shanghai Daily reports that at 10:48am today on metro Line 5 from Jiaokou station to Xicun station, two male teenagers sprayed irritant gas into the crowd causing a stampede. Four passengers were slightly injured. The teenagers fled the scene and an investigation is under way.
