A student in Japan has found himself locked up in a train station in Kumamoto on Friday, October 16, after nature called him due to stomachache. The premise he was stuck at was already closed after the last train departed the station when he got out of the toilet.

At around 11:30 p.m, the student began sharing photos and videos of him on Twitter attempting to open the shutters at the exit with his hand. The student hurriedly explained the situation in a series of tweets, saying:

“I’m completely trapped in the station. When I was in the toilet because of a stomachache, a staff member came and said they were closing but I said 'Hang on a moment' and now this is what happened. What’s going on? Seriously.”

The tweets, which have since been made private, went on to say:
“The only way I can get out is by jumping the fence. I’ll have to enter a prohibited area.”

People responsively replied to his tweets with several advice on how to handle the situation, with some even suggesting him to contact the police.

Several minutes later at 12:22 a.m., the student posted an update to his Twitter account that reads: “I got out! I got out! I can go home now!!!”

He managed to escape the premise and tweeted a post warning everyone to be careful of that type of situations and describing himself mentally exhausted after the ordeal. He also went on to say:

“The station official who came to check the toilet was locking up when I got out of the toilet and we made eye contact. So of course I thought I was still able to get out. When I headed over (to the exit), the shutter was closed. When I rushed back to where the staff member had been, he wasn’t there anymore. This means that I was intentionally trapped, doesn’t it? It’s a house arrest, isn’t it?”

Despite the student’s claim that the shut-in was intentional, Kumamoto Electric Railway made a statement on Oct 18, apologizing for the error and citing the cause as “lack of confirmation” by staff. They said: “From now on, we will enforce patrolling confirmation rules at the close of business, for both our employees and subcontractors, to ensure this doesn’t happen again.”
