Storyline


At least 23 people were killed and 79 others injured after a metro bridge collapsed in southern Mexico City Monday night, according to local authorities.

The authorities were working to identify the dead, which included children, Mexico City Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum told reporters at the scene in the south of the capital.

One person trapped in their car underneath the wreckage had been rescued alive and was taken to hospital. Seven of the people transported to hospital were in a "grave condition" and undergoing surgery, she said.

A video on local channel Milenio TV showed the overpass collapsing on top of cars plying on the road below near Olivos station in the southeast of the city at around 22:30 local time.

It appeared a girder had given way on the overpass but the cause was being investigated, the mayor said.

Dozens of emergency workers were trying to rescue victims from the carriages. But the work later had to be suspended because of fears the wreckage was too unstable.

Part of the train was hanging from the tracks in a tangle of twisted cables with the front ends of two carriages pointing toward the ground in a V-shape. A car got trapped under the rubble.

Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard called Monday's incident a terrible tragedy on social networks and said he was at investigators' full disposal.

The Metro 12 line that runs over the collapsed overpass was put into use in 2012. The specific cause of the accident is under investigation.
