Two 17-year-old African migrants were electrocuted and seriously injured while hiding on a TGV train in Nice on Monday evening.
The youths, from Guinea-Conakry, were discovered shortly after 10:30 pm, at the Saint Roch freight station in Nice, having travelled from Ventimiglia hidden between the engine and the first coach before climbing onto the roof of the train.
One was very badly burned in the legs, while the other escaped with less serious injuries. They were taken to Pasteur Hospital.
Last February, the body of a man was found at Cannes La Bocca station. He had also arrived from Ventimiglia and was electrocuted while holding on to the pantograph.
National Council President Stéphane Valeri has visited the Grimaldi Forum to thank the team behind the screening campaign, while also encouraging more people to take the Covid-19 antibody test.
Prince Albert has been tested at a Covid-19 screening centre in Monaco to raise awareness about the government’s campaign to have as many people of the Principality tested as possible.
Monaco’s primary students made their return to school on Monday, the final group to do so in the government’s three-phase plan to lift the lockdown.
The Principality ordered some 11.5 million masks at the height of the crisis. Now those masks are being safely stored by the government for a rainy day.
