Subway Train derails in Mexico City, killing at least 13 people

A subway train tracked down Monday night in Mexico City after a concrete lane partially collapsed, killing at least 13 people and injuring many others, the government said.

The tracking took place on line 12 of the subway system at Olivos Station in southeastern Mexico City, the Mexican Civil Protection Agency said in a post on Twitter.

Initial images from the site showed sloping train carriages, tangled wires and twisted metal. Videos of the derailment released by the government showed at least one orange-yellow subway car hanging from a overpass.

Carlos Zúñiga Pérez, TV host in Mexico City, tweeted a video of rescue workers rescuing injured passengers from a sloping subway, helping them down ladders.

Claudia Sheinbaum, the city’s mayor, said she was on site and supported rescue workers.

The metro system in Mexico City, the country’s major capital, handles more than four million passengers a day. It is the second largest in America after the one in New York City.

In March 2020, one man was killed and at least 41 others were injured when two subway trains collided in Mexico City. Mrs Sheinbaum said at the time that one of the trains had apparently come back into the other by accident.
