9:06 am
square.squa that is exactly the same issue that caused the track fire and d smoke issue at l'efant plaza ana what made this even moree surprising and perhaps even more serious is that apparently theyy went back, there were lots of problems we knew with the powerr cables and the insulators, and a at mcpherson square, that cable insulator in that under groundnn tunnel had been inspected less s than year ago, and was deemed to be okay. so that is why general manager wiedefeld said he could not cld trust any of the inspectionspe that had been done previously. u wanted to try to figure out whaa is is going on with these cable insulators. what is happening the insulatiol is deteriorating and it's allowing the metal inside that t cable that electrified cable to contact metal that is in the tunnel causing the electrical arcing, causing these and really just said, you know,o yeah, it's
9:07 am
small risk, but it's a risk we s cannot take. here's what he said last night. >> while the risk to public isci very low, i cannot rule out a potential life safety issue herh and this is why we must take mt this action immediately. and in this case, um, there wasw potential metal on metal which w is very similar to what we had l'efant plaza situation.itti >> it happened once it, okay, io what happened? right? but it'' happened twice in a year.. so i can't -- i can't wait for't the third time. >> reporter: so from what we w understand it is 600 of these te jumper cables that are sort of filling a gap there in the ith underground tunnels undergroundu stations. stations they are fanning out through all the underground stations. sta a team of a edge pro swarming s the system not just with metro worker but outside contractorsoo as well to inspect every singlen one of those.. wiedefeld says he will not run the trains until personally bena sure all the insulators are
