53 Train crash survivors discharged from Hospital – Commissioner Of Health, Abayomi

Akin Abayomi, the commissioner for health in Lagos, says a total of 53 survivors in the train and a staff bus crash in the state have been discharged from different hospitals.

Recall on March 9, a train collided with a Lagos state staff bus conveying workers in the Shogunle area of Oshodi.

Witnesses at the scene said the bus was attempting to cross the rail track when an oncoming train rammed into it and dragged the bus from Shogunle to the PWD area of Ikeja.

Shortly after the incident, the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) confirmed six people have died from the incident.

Giving an update on Sunday, Abayomi said 53 out of the 102 persons involved in the accident have been discharged.

He added that 43 patients are still receiving treatment.

“Total number of patients on admission as of Sunday 12th March 2022 (43); LASUTH (39), General Hospital Odan-Lagos (2), General Hospital, Gbagada (2).

“The total number of patients/passengers discharged as at Sunday, March 12, 2023, is 53.”

Meanwhile, the driver of the BRT bus has blamed the incident on mechanical faults.
