Casualties in the Sunday accident in the Moscow metro were avoided by miracle
Casualties in the Sunday accident in the Moscow metro were avoided by miracle, a source at the Moscow rescue service told Itar-Tass. “The tunnel roof was pierced in several places, and two concrete pillars, which are still to be removed, pierced a train car,” he said. “The concrete pillars are being cut down so that the train could be towed away,” the source said. Then rescuers will decide how to reinforce the tunnel roof. The repairs may last all through the night. Experts explain the accident with unauthorized works near the Voikovskaya metro station. The tunnel was only two meters away from the billboard installed on the surface. A concrete pillar hit the first train car when the train was one kilometer away from the Voikovskaya station, and several pillars were hammered down into the third train car. No one was hurt, but the passengers were in shock. They had to walk back to the station, and ten people asked for psychological aid, the Emergency Situations Ministry said.
