Well we had already gone through Dabanqiao before it and it was another 5 or 6 minutes until I reached the Airport Terminal. The only option (if it a station) would be the "Pre-Airport Station" or "机场前站" though considering it's on a spur line, I thought it was a future depot for the trains.

[size=4]Construction fault behind SW China metro accident

KUNMING, Jan. 11 (Xinhua) -- Substandard construction has been confirmed as the cause of Tuesday's fatal metro line accident in Kunming, capital of southwest China's Yunnan Province, said the metro operator on Friday.

Initial investigation showed that a fireproof door fell onto the track and caused a train to derail, killing one driver and injuring another, according to a report released by Kunming Rail Transit Co., Ltd.

Contractors failed to install the fireproof doors in accordance with construction specifications, said the report.

At 9:09 a.m. on Tuesday, a test train on the metro line derailed, the ensuing collisions causing the vehicle's air conditioning device to fall and hit the drivers in their cabin.

The city's first metro line, scheduled for trial operation in February, was undergoing a non-loaded test run.

The government has set up an investigation team to probe the accident and has demanded the metro company start an overall safety check.

The construction company completely f**ked up.

The fireproof door is an access door on the side of the tunnel, after repeated passings of the trains the pressure cycles generated eventually pulled the door from its frame and landed on the tracks. When this train hit the door the driver immediately applied emergency break but it's too late. The first carriage was lifted upward by the fireproof door and caused it to collide with the tunnel's two civil defense blast doors. This impact caused the heater to detach from the ceiling and fell onto the driver, killing him.

I don't think a 'heater' killed him - it was likely an air conditioning unit.

There is no air conditioner hung right above the driver's head, it's first reported as a "heater" and then in the final accident report the terminology changed to "air circulation unit (通风单元)" which means HVAC vent. Very likely to be something like this.

"HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning)"
