A white guide cane of a visually impaired man walking on a station platform was caught between the doors of a departing train in Tokyo earlier this month and remained unnoticed until it arrived at the next station, officials of railway operator Tokyu Corp. said Tuesday.

The man was not hurt in the Nov. 17 incident, which took place at Futako Tamagawa Station on the Denentoshi Line. The man was approaching the first car of the 10-car train bound for Chuo Rinkan Station at around 4:45 p.m. when his cane got stuck in the doors, according to the railway operator.
