Mexico City metro overpass collapses, killing 23 people

The accident occurred when a section of the elevated tracks collapsed at the Olivos station at around 10:00 pm (0300 GMT), she said.

One man, Jose Martinez, told reporters that he had a miraculous escape because he was unable to leave work in time to catch the ill-fated train.

“I was saved by like 15 minutes. It’s good that nothing happened to me,” he said.

The Mexico City subway has 12 lines and carries millions of passengers each day.

Line 12, where the accident struck, was inaugurated in October 2012 by then mayor Marcelo Ebrard, who is now foreign minister.

Writing on Twitter, Mr Ebrard offered his cooperation with the investigation to establish the causes and responsibility for what he called a “terrible tragedy.”
