Two twin sisters are hit by a regional train in Hamburg. One dies, the other is seriously injured. The researchers must now clarify: How could this happen?
Hamburg: Two 18-year-old twin sisters were hit by a regional train on the tracks in Hamburg-Allermöhe. One of the two died at the scene, the federal police announced on Wednesday. The seriously injured sister was taken to a hospital. Initially, it was not clear why the two were on the tracks at the time of the accident Tuesday night.
“We are investigating in every way,” said a spokesman for the federal police. It may be that, for example, a video for social media needs to be recorded, which could have been about jumping to the side just before the train. The spokesman could say no more.
However, he reported that the twins were known to federal and state police for “low-threshold crimes.” “There has also been unauthorized stay on the tracks. She has been in contact with the parents. Exactly what incidents occurred in the past are currently being determined.
The spokesman emphasized that it could also have been a tragic accident while crossing the tracks. When questioned, the spokesperson explained that it was not a job known to be used illegally as an abbreviation. A suicide attempt is also a possibility, he said. “Now we are looking for witnesses.”
The regional train was heading to Schwerin. The accident occurred about 250 meters from the Allermöhe station. “There were around 200 people on the train,” the federal police spokesman said. “The train was evacuated.” A rail replacement service had been established. A crisis intervention team was on scene. dpa
