In a tragic incident unfolding in Mexico on Monday, a woman in her twenties lost her life while attempting to take a selfie near a passing train. The heart-wrenching episode, captured on video, has since garnered significant attention on social media platforms.

According to reports from local outlets, the unfortunate event transpired near Hidalgo, where a group of individuals had gathered to capture images of a vintage steam engine train known as the 'Empress' as it traversed the area. Amidst this gathering, the woman, accompanied by her son and children from a nearby school, ventured too close to the tracks in pursuit of the perfect selfie with the approaching locomotive.

In the disturbing footage, the woman, adorned in an orange top, can be seen positioning herself for the photo opportunity beside a child. As the train approaches, the child instinctively ducks down, while the woman remains focused on capturing the moment. Tragically, as she kneels for the snapshot, the rear of the train engine strikes her head, propelling her forward with force. In the ensuing chaos, the shocked child flees the scene, while a nearby individual rushes to pull the victim's body away from the oncoming train, narrowly averting further catastrophe.

The woman, tragically killed on the spot, leaves behind a chilling reminder of the dangers associated with attempting risky photo stunts near railway tracks.

The 'Empress,' officially designated as Canadian Pacific 2816, holds a storied history, dating back to its construction in 1930. As part of the Final Spike Steam Tour commemorating a historic merger that birthed Canadian Pacific Kansas City (CPKC), the locomotive embarked on a transcontinental journey from Calgary, traversing Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Scheduled to conclude its tour in Mexico City on Friday, the train, meticulously restored for the occasion, is poised to retire upon its return to Canada in July.

 

In response to the tragic incident, the Canadian Pacific Kansas City (CPKC) company expressed profound regret and assured full cooperation with law enforcement authorities in conducting a comprehensive investigation. Emphasizing safety precautions, CPKC urged the public to maintain a safe distance of at least ten meters from railway tracks during train passages, cautioning against stopping near or on the tracks or attempting to climb onto trains or railway infrastructure. The company's poignant message serves as a stark reminder of the critical need for vigilance and awareness around railway tracks and trains to prevent further tragedies.
