Train disaster in Spain: 20 injured

At least 20 people, 3 of them seriously, were injured as a result of the panicked passengers trying to escape by breaking the windows in the passenger train passing through the region where the forest fire continued in the Valencia region of Spain.

There were moments of fear in an ongoing forest fire in Castellon, in the autonomous region of Valencia, Spain . On a passenger train from Sagunto to Zaragoza, the driver saw the flames coming towards the railway and decided to stop the train and turn around.

However, at this time, a group of panicked passengers, seeing the flames, broke the windows and jumped off the train, but the flames spread to the wagon.

“When they saw that they were surrounded by fire, they went back to the train and many suffered burns,” a spokesman for the Spanish rail company Renfe said. Spanish authorities announced that there were 48 passengers on the train and 20 people were injured, 3 of them seriously.
