A subway collapse in Mexico City has claimed the lives of 25 people and left nearly 70 other victims injured.
Around 10:30 p.m. Monday night, the metro’s 12 line overpass collapsed, crushing the cars beneath it.
The Mayor of Mexico City, Claudia Sheinbaum, informed reporters that at least 65 people were transported to nearby hospitals for emergency medical care. She also confirmed that the accident occurred when “a support beam gave way” just as the train passed over it, causing the structure to collapse.
The accident occurred on Line 12 near the Olivos station, sometime around 10:30 p.m. (11:30 p.m. ET).
