Southern Pakistan: Tragic news out of Pakistan this morning two express trains collided killing over 30 people. What happened was an express train derailed and an intercity train packed with travelers slammed into it. The cause of the crash is yet to be determined an investigation is underway. Rescue teams are still trying to free trapped passengers hours after the crash. The injured are being taken to local hospitals, the remote location of the incident has also made the rescue effort difficult.
The railways date back to the British Colonial era. So wear ‘n’ tare, sun damage, and water damage has been mounting over the years. No official cause has been determined, regardless accidents are all too common on these rundown tracks. Our thoughts and prayers at IMU Media go out to all the victim’s loved ones.
