At least 34 people have died after a passenger train smashed into a vehicle on its tracks and partially derailed outside a tunnel in Taiwan.
Dozens more have been injured and survivors were pictured climbing out of windows and onto roofs to reach safety in the island’s worst railway disaster in decades.
The crash occurred near the Toroko Gorge scenic area at around 9am on a public holiday, and officials in Hualien county said rescue efforts are continuing.
It is thought around 350 passengers were on board and 70 people could still be trapped.

    • @ Courtz Francis - when’s the last time your heard of a train being derailed in the UK? Or a car crashing into a train in the UK? Lol 🤦🏻‍♂️ The only thing that happens in the UK is people jumping in front of them to commit suicide.

    • @GoogleHave BetrayedHumanity It's 48 people now, so why are those numbers special? Or the next death toll that's released? Muppet.

    • @GoogleHave BetrayedHumanity so, you don't know why the 3s and 6s have any significance to this train crash, only that they are somehow mysteriously significant in a way you are sure of, but just don't know how or why. Glad you cleared that up.

  • That's a weird evacuation, over the roof. It puts the passengers very close to the 25kV overhead line, as well as the obvious risk of falling from that height.

    • @ Seventy Seventh Reserve Sockpuppet - this has nothing to do with Covid. And you’re assuming it is and assuming I’m on the opposite side to your stance on Covid, I think Covid is a sham !! But you are others are laughing and joking about a serious incident. I bet you laughed at the Paris terror attacks didn’t you. Have some respect mate.

    • @RJ Boxing You do realise both the UK and the US acknowledge Taiwan is part of China officially, but obviously to counter China's rise in recent years its been saying otherwise? Taiwan is a Chinese territory/region, I mean it is not even in the UN lmao 😂

    • @Shark B only in recent years, this has been a long ongoing feud between the two. The west chose to recognise PRC over ROC to their detriment

      ShadowDugifyShadowDugify18 days ago
    • @ShadowDugify You are right mate, but can you seriously look at Taiwan province and make the claim that it seriously represents China? Taiwan has been propped up by Anglo Saxon powers, mainly the US, as a way to counter China's rise
