At least 15 people dead, dozens injured in Mexico City train wreck – New York Post

At least 15 people died and dozens were injured when a Mexico City metro train derailed off a collapsed overpass on Monday night, authorities said.

The train collapsed down toward the road, trapping at least one car under rubble, according to authorities.

Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum said a support beam gave out just as a train rode over it.

In addition to the deaths, at least 70 people were injured in the wreck on the metro’s Line 12, the mayor said.

A crane was needed late Monday to help with the rescue efforts.

People were still aboard the dangling train, though it’s unclear if they are alive, the mayor said.
