Corps member feared dead after Lagos train accident | Photo

A Corps member, deployed to Lagos State for her service and yet to be identified, was reportedly involved in a train accident yesterday in Ikeja area of the State, which according to sources left her body seriously mangled.

Vanguard reports that the Corp member’s body, which was seriously mangled, was left lying on the rail line, attracting passers-by to the scene. Sources said that an effort to drag her back when an oncoming train was approaching proved abortive as she was busy pressing her phone.

“The train was not moving at a high speed. People tried to call her attention to the oncoming train but she didn’t yield to the call as she continued pressing her mobile phone”.

“I was looking at her from where I stood and saw her with an earpiece plugged into her ears which made her unable to hear the sound of the oncoming train.

Many passers-by tried to pull her out of the rail line but she ran towards the moving train which crushed parts of her body,” an eyewitness narrated.

Sources disclosed that the victim was later rushed to the hospital for medical attention by some bystanders. Efforts to reach Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Mr. Chike Oti, for confirmation and where the victim was rushed to, proved abortive.
