Mexico City metro rail overpass collapse - at least 27 dead now

At least 27 dead after Mexico City commuter train overpass collapses

LINK

A Mexico City subway train overpass collapsed onto a busy road below on Monday night, killing at least 27 people, including children, authorities said. More than 60 people were injured.

Photos and video from the scene showed mangled train cars hanging from the crumbled overpass and rescue personnel searching and transporting the injured on stretchers.

“A support beam gave way,” Mexico City Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum said at the scene. She said the beam collapsed just as the train passed over it. The accident occurred on Line 12 near the Olivos station in the southeast of the city around 10:30 p.m. (11:30 p.m. ET).

The mayor, wearing a hard hat and face mask, told reporters at the site that 65 people had been taken to hospitals, and seven were in serious condition.

Mexico's civil protection agency later published an updated list of victims on Tuesday morning, showing that at least 79 people had been taken to area hospitals, including two 15-year-old females and a 17-year-old male.

Mexican flags across all government buildings were hoisted at half mast as a sign of mourning for the victims.




Some photos of the area over the years before collapse:

holy shite - the fact no-one paid any attention to the degradation and conditions of that Infrastructure, should be brought up on criminal charges.

sadly it would not surprise me if we didn't have areas in that bad of shape in the US.

Oh, it was paid attention to alright. Paid right in to the pocket of someone. Mexico has perfected corruption and made it into a fine art.

I'd give her the key to the city, if you catch my drift.

Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo was born to a secular Jewish family in Mexico City.[2] Her father's Ashkenazi parents emigrated to Mexico City from Lithuania in the 1920s; her mother's Sephardic parents emigrated there from Sofia, Bulgaria, in the early 1940s to escape the Holocaust. She celebrated all the Jewish holidays at her grandparents' homes.[3][2] Both of her parents are scientists; her father, chemical engineer Carlos Sheinbaum Yoselevitz, and her mother, Annie Pardo Cemo, a biologist, now professor emeritus of the Faculty of Sciences at the National Autonomous University of Mexico.[4][5][3][2][6][7] Her brother is a physicist.[6]

We should include another trillion in the infrastructure deal for Mexican infrastructure.
