traintrackheadTwo 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.
