Survivors recount chaos after Greece train crash

Survivors of a train crash in Greece have spoken out about the chaos that ensued after the accident. The crash, which occurred on Monday, involved two passenger trains and left one person dead and at least ten others injured.

Eyewitnesses reported hearing a loud bang before the trains collided, causing extensive damage to the vehicles and derailing several of them. Survivors described scenes of panic and confusion as they tried to evacuate the trains and help others who were injured.

One survivor, who was on board one of the trains, described the moment of impact as “surreal.” “I heard a bang and then chaos,” she said. “People were screaming and trying to get out of the train.”

Another survivor, who was on board the other train involved in the crash, said he was thrown from his seat and landed on the floor. “There was smoke and dust everywhere,” he said. “People were crying and screaming.”

The cause of the crash is still under investigation, but initial reports suggest that it may have been due to a signal failure or a problem with the tracks. The Greek government has promised to conduct a full investigation into the accident and to take measures to improve transport safety in the country.

The crash has once again raised concerns about the safety of Greece’s transport infrastructure. In recent years, the country has seen a number of serious accidents on its roads and railways, leading to calls for greater investment in infrastructure and safety measures. It remains to be seen what action will be taken in the wake of this latest incident to prevent future accidents and ensure the safety of passengers.
