At least 20 people have been killed and another 49 hospitalised after an elevated train line collapsed in Mexico City last night.
Of the 49 people who have been hospitalised, seven of them are in critical condition and are undergoing surgery.
Video footage shows the train line collapsing onto cars directly below the structure at Olivos station while train carriages hang over the damaged line.
Due to concerns over the train line collapsing further, rescue efforts had to be temporarily paused. Stating that the accident appeared to have been caused by a girder giving way, Mexico City Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum said that a crane was transported to the site to resume rescue operations as the train was extremely weak.
This comes just over a year after another railway incident occurred in Mexico City where two subway trains collided with each other leading to one death and 40 injuries.
