Little do the passengers traveling in different trains know that they are going to face the biggest shock in their lives. Passengers on their destinations met with a deadly collision leaving more than 200 people dead and hundreds more injured. Authorities say that this is the biggest mishap in the recent past.
Going into details three trains collided with each other in Odisha’s Balasore. Three trains – Bengaluru-Howrah Superfast Express, Shalimar-Chennai Central Coromandel Express, and a goods train rammed into each other leaving hundreds of passengers dead and injured.
The massive collusion happened with Bengaluru-Howrah Superfast Express losing the track. As a result, a few bogies got separated from the train and were all over the place. The bogies hit the Shalimar-Chennai Central Coromandel Express which in turn hit the goods train. This led to a massive collusion which is said to be the deadliest in the country in the past two decades.
The Trains rain in a way that if two trains are coming in the same way and if there is any issue then one train would be either stopped or will be asked to go fast as a safety measure. If this is not possible, the station master will change the track so that no unwanted scenes take place.
But something unexpected happened as the train lost the track leaving its bogies all over the place. This is not what can be cleared at the earliest. By the time the news went to the authorities’ notice, it created issues for two other trains.
Governments swung into action to rescue and special teams were called to the scene. Special numbers were provided for the information. The numbers are getting call after call as family members are worried about their loved ones.
Ex-gratia was announced by the governments for the deceased and victims as well. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also expressed his shock over what happened
As Bhogies and all over the place, it has become difficult to save the victims. Bogies are being removed to see if there are any victims trapped under them. The last bogie was also removed and the rescue work is underway,
But what grabbed everyone’s attention is the helping nature of the locals. Knowing that the accident happened, people gathered in big numbers to offer help. They donated blood voluntarily to help the victims.
