Taxi stuck on temple steps in Yishun after mistaking it for exit

A ComfortDelGro taxi was left stranded on the staircase of a temple in Yishun yesterday (March 15) after mistaking it for the exit.

A video of the cab in its unusual position was posted on Facebook.

"Now I know why the stone lions look so shocked," quipped a caption within the video, in reference to the stone statues outside the temple.

No injuries were reported.

In response to a Stomp query, Ms Tammy Tan, Group Corporate Communications Officer for ComfortDelGro Corporation Limited, said: “Our priority is the welfare of our cabby and we will assist him the best we can.

"We have also activated our loss adjustors to look into the matter immediately with regard to the property of the temple.

"We are relieved that neither him nor any members of the public were injured.

"The incident occurred because the cabby, who had just dropped a passenger off, mistook the staircase area to be the exit.

"By the time he realised his error, it was too late."
