At least six people died, about 80 more were injured as a result of the collapse of the metro bridge in the Mexican capital. This was announced on Tuesday, May 4, by El Imparcial, citing emergency services.

The metro bridge along with the train collapsed in the southeast of Mexico City, near the Olivos and Tesonco stations.

“I am heading now to the scene of the incident on line 12, I will inform on arrival,” – wrote the mayor of the Mexican capital, Claudia Scheinbaum in Twitter

Emergency teams and ambulances are also at the scene.

On April 24, it was reported that the pedestrian bridge collapsed about the 46th km of the Yekaterinburg ring road. It was clarified that a MAN truck with a semi-trailer trawl transported medium-sized oversized cargo, namely equipment for processing and sorting stones.

The truck’s two wheels burst simultaneously while driving under the bridge, which caused the load to be thrown up. He touched the upper part of the structure, as a result of which it collapsed onto the roadway. Because of what happened, a traffic jam was formed for several kilometers. No casualties were reported at that time.
