MOSCOW, July 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Five people have died and 120 have been injured in the Moscow metro train derailement, Moscow Department of Helathcare head Georgy Golukhov said.
Ninety-five people have been hospitalized, while 50 of them are in a serious condition.
Several people were stuck for about an hour in an underground tunnel between metro stations Park Pobedy and Slavyansky Bulvar, as a metro train car filled with passengers derailed on Moscow’s Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya blue metro line on Tuesday, eyewitnesses told ITAR-TASS.
“We stayed in the tunnel for more than an hour, then evacuation was announced, and we went down the track towards Slavyansky Bulvar,” one of the passengers said. Another passenger said that everything had occurred unexpectedly.
An ITAR-TASS correspondent, who is currently near the Slavyansky Bulvar metro station, reported that people going out of the metro were not informed about what had happened. One of the passengers said no announcements had been made in the train either.
Eyewitnesses estimate that at least 100 people have been injured.
Emergency response teams and ambulance crews are working at the scene. Sixty-six busses have been organized additionally to transport passengers from Kiyevskaya to Molodezhnaya metro stations of the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya line. It is recommended that people use other metro lines moving in the direction of Moscow region.
