Relatives of Once train crash victims mark 29th-month anniversary

Relatives of the victims of Once train crash remembered their loved ones and claimed for justice, 29 months after the tragedy.

On the 29th-month anniversary of the Once train crash that left 51 dead and 700 injured, relatives of the victims gathered at the Once central station, like they do on the 22th of every month, to remember their loved ones and to renew their claims for justice.

Minutes after 8.32 a.m. –the exact time of the accident-, sirens sounded on Platform 1, at the place where the formations crashed on February 22, 2012.

“We are here today with the same strength, going through a very special time with the oral and public trial against the 29 indicted in the probe,” said Paolo Menghini, father of Lucas Menghini, the last victim to be retrieved from the formation after the train wreck. “It is not easy but here we are, with out intellectual physical and emotional strength,” he added.

Menghini also praised the government’s investments in the Sarmiento railway, with seven formations inagurated by the President yesterday, saying “passengers need safe trains”. However he expressed his regret that the new formations were not ready sooner, “it hurts that they arrive after February 22,” he said in reference to the day of the crash.

The families of the victims announced that on August 22, by the two and a half years anniversary a permanent memorial will be placed to remember those who lost their lives for the Argentine people to “never forget” what happened on that fatal morning of 2012.
