Mexico City’s high-rise portion collapsed and sent the train into a busy boulevard late Monday, killing at least 23 At least 79 people were injured and injured, city officials said.
Rescuers found four bodies trapped inside a railroad car that was hanging from a crossroads but could not be removed. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum says one of the concrete blocks collapsed when a submarine passed through one of the worst accidents in the city’s underground transport system, one of the busiest in the world.
Mexican Foreign Secretary Marcelo Ebrard also described the fall as “the deadliest accident we ever had to run a mass”. Ebrard was mayor of Mexico City from 2006 to 2012, when the line in question was closed, and his collapse could have killed him.
“The causes of the fall in prices should be determined through expert research,” Sheinbaum said.
Earlier he said someone had been dragged alive in a car that was caught on the road below. He said 77 of the injured were hospitalized. He also said that the children were among the dead.
The entrance was about five feet (16 feet) above the road in Tlahuac state, but the ship crossed the center line of concrete, which apparently reduced injuries to drivers on the subway.
The Mexico City Metro – one of the cheapest prices in the world with tickets worth about 25 cents – has had at least two accidents since its inception half a year ago. In March last year, a collision between two trains at Tacubaya station left one passenger dead and 41 injured. In 2015, a non-stop train collided with another Oceania station, injuring 12 people.
Hundreds of police and firefighters surrounded the area at night as eager friends and relatives believed to have been on the ship gathered outside the security compound. Although the coronavirus problem was still serious in Mexico City, they came together to wait for news.
