BBC, 04 May 2021
At least 23 people have been killed and dozens injured after a metro overpass collapsed in Mexico City while a train was travelling on it, officials have said.
Several train carriages plunged to the ground, crushing at least one car, which was on a busy road underneath.
Rescue workers and firefighters are still searching for survivors.
Mexico City Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum said the cause of the accident was still being investigated, but it appeared a girder had given way on the overpass.
