New migrant incident halts rail traffic

traintrackheadTrain 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.
