21 People Died And 160 Were Injured In the Moscow Metro Accident

Today is a day of mourning in Moscow, as at least 21 people died and 160 were injured in the Moscow metro accident that happened on July 15, 2014 at about 8:30 in the morning. Several carriages were damaged after they came off the rails.

      The accident occurred on the stretch between Park Pobedy and Slavyansky Bulvar metro stations.

      An investigation is being conducted to identify those responsible for this tragedy.

      As for the current transport situation, a bus service is launched to transport passengers as several metro stations are still closed. 66 buses had been assigned for the transportation of passengers.

      Yesterday, rescuers evacuated over 1,150 people from the stretch of line where the accident occurred. 127 people were taken to Moscow hospitals. Three helicopters of the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry helped to transport the victims of the accident to hospitals. 

      Various theories for the catastrophe are being considered by investigators now. Among them are carriage defects, a power spike and some other. It will take time to discover, however, the theory of a terrorist attack has been already ruled out.
