Not nice. The passengers should have been totally aware of the disaster them was waiting.
The train was designed that it couldn't get damaged easily. The windows where not from glass but some sort of plastic which can't be broken very easily.
Some passengers got managed to get out in the back of the train but others who broke out in the front of the train ran into the wrong direction of the tunnel and got killed by the smoke.
