MEXICO CITY (Metro Rail News): President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador vowed a comprehensive and open inquiry into the cause of the crash when cranes were pulling two train cars that were left dangling from a light-rail overpass that collapsed on May 3.

On Monday night, a concrete slab supporting a metro track in Mexico City gave way in a horrifying roar, sending two rail cars plunging into a highway below. Twenty-four people were killed. It was the latest in a string of misfortunes for a grid that serves as the bedrock of the capital’s transit network, with millions of impoverished and working-class people depending on it.

On Tuesday, the fatal collapse of a subway overpass in Mexico City sparked grief and political recriminations, throwing senior politicians on the defensive as they answered concerns about shoddy work and inadequate upkeep for one of the world’s busiest subway networks. Authorities suspended recovery operations soon after they started, citing the danger of further train parts and rubble crashing down into the route

Claudia Sheinbaum (Head of Government of Mexico City) said that police were trying to locate the deceased, which included teenagers. One individual was saved alive and taken to the hospital after being stuck in their vehicle under the rubble. Seven of the people who were taken to the hospital were in “grave condition” and were having surgery, according to police. When Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard was mayor of Mexico City, the Metro 12 line that passes over the collapsed overpass was designed almost a decade ago.

“The Metro disaster that occurred is a horrific catastrophe. My heart goes out to the victims and their families “On Twitter, Ebrard wrote.”Of course, the reasons must be investigated, and roles must be assigned.” Many political analysts see Ebrard and Sheinbaum as the most possible successors to President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador when his six-year term ends in 2024.
