Germany. Bavaria: The toll of a train derailment

Five people were killed and 44 others were injured in a train accident that occurred in the German Alps. Although the death toll had been previously reported at 4 and 30 respectively, police found a new body.

Investigators combed through the damaged railcars, looking for casualties and clues that may determine the cause of the accident near Garmisch-Partenkirchen, an area where the leaders' summit will be held later this month. G7. G7. Frank Wellig, deputy chief of regional police, said that he couldn't be certain about that.

He also stated that four victims were adult women and that 44 others were hurt, including children.

It happened shortly after noon Friday, as students were returning home from the Pentecost holidays in Baden-Wurttemberg und Bavaria.

According to police, the train was "crowded" with about 140 people aboard. Federal Transport Minister Volker Wisering was at the accident site and said he was moved. He told reporters that he would continue his investigation to determine the cause of the accident.

This accident occurs two days after the introduction of a fixed monthly price of 9 Euros that allows you to travel by regional train throughout Germany. This offer has been very popular and raised concerns about overcrowding.
