Default Mexico Subway overpass collapses

CNN)An overpass carrying a subway train collapsed in Mexico City late Monday, killing 15 people and injuring at least 70, according to local government officials.

The subway was traveling on an elevated and outdoor portion of the city's rapid transit system on the newest Line 12, also known as the Golden Line, when a portion of the overpass collapsed, Mexico's Secretariat of Risk Management and Civil Protection said.

CCTV surveillance footage shows the moment of the collapse directly over a street with moving cars, followed by a cloud of dust and debris

Yes tragic.

I would think someone did not report the stress
of that subway.

Sad, CDMX Metro is crazy though. Theres literally carriages only for Children and Women because they get attacked so much.

Cannot beat the price though I think it was 20 pesos a ticket to anywhere including the airport.

My random tip for when you are in CDMX is to head to San Angel on a Sunday, beautiful little suburb with an art market in the square.

So unfortunate, RIP to all those people. I hope they find out the reason very soon.
