Train service to and from Monaco Monte-Carlo was interrupted for almost two hours on the evening of Sunday, May 14, after a migrant was discovered electrocuted but alive on the roof of a TER train from Ventimiglia to Nice.
The man was discovered on TER 86050 at 6:30 pm at Carnolès station in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin. He had been seriously burned on both legs, but was conscious. Rescue workers were able to remove him from the roof after the power was cut off.
Service in both directions was resumed shortly after 8 pm. A number of similar incidents have been reported in recent months, with several migrant fatalities on train roofs and in tunnels as refugees try to make their way into France from Italy.
The National Council and government have come together for the 3rd Joint Monitoring Meeting on Covid-19.
As lockdown continues, the fire brigade of Monaco is taking additional steps to ensure the rules of confinement are respected, notably by integrating a drone as part of its public safety repertoire.
The Assembly has unanimously re-elected Stéphane Valeri as President of the National Council, with Brigitte Boccone-Pagès remaining as Vice-President.
Two Monaco-based companies are doing their bit to help during the Covid-19 pandemic.
