Mexicans demand justice for victims of train accident

Hundreds of demonstrators took to the streets of Mexico City on Friday (May 7) to demand justice for the 24 victims of the dramatic collapse of a rail overpass in Mexico’s capital.

People paid tribute to the victims leaving flowers and playing music outside Los Olivos station, where the metro overpass collapsed.

Outrage has taken hold of Mexicans after one of the capital’s deadliest metro accidents in decades.

According to authorities, a preliminary review suggested that a failure in the horizontal support beams caused the accident.

Mexico City Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum urged the public to avoid speculation and promised a thorough investigation.

On Monday night (May 3), the overpass of Line 12 of the Mexico City metro collapsed, leaving at least 24 killed and 79 people injured, including three children.

The crash has raised wider questions about safety on one of the world’s busiest metro systems, which carries millions of people daily across the capital’s urban sprawl.
