We hope Bj Fungshui doesn't allow any accident of this kind in Beijing.</p> <p id="yui_3_3_0_1_1317135327109396">Two subway trains collided in Shanghai on Tuesday injuring more than 270 passengers, 20 critically, prompting public anger two months after a crash between two high-speed trains and renewing concerns about China's aggressive rail building plans.</p> <p id="yui_3_3_0_1_1317135327109394">The collision occurred in central Shanghai, near the Yu Yuan gardens, a well-known tourist attraction, after a signal failure meant staff had to direct trains by telephone, though they were also running at slower speeds, state media said.</p> <p id="yui_3_3_0_1_1317135327109392">The official Xinhua news agency said most of the injuries were bruises and bone fractures, and that nobody was in a life-threatening condition. About 180 people have already been discharged from hospital, it said.</p> <p id="yui_3_3_0_1_1317135327109390">Ambulances rushed to the Yu Yuan station and emergency personnel carried injured passengers out, Reuters witnesses said.</p> <p id="yui_3_3_0_1_1317135327109388">Shen Jun, 23, who was in the first coach of the train that collided at 2:51 p.m. (0651GMT), said "blood was everywhere."&nbsp;</p> <p>High Priest</p>
