The 82-year-old woman who ended up under a train at Milan Central Station died today at noon at the Niguarda hospital in Milan.
The elderly woman was taken to hospital in desperate conditions with her right leg amputated, her left very compromised and severe bleeding. Attempts to revive her are futile.
The episode took place around 12 o’clock. According to the reconstruction of a witness, the 82-year-old woman residing in Genoa tried to cross the tracks with lots of suitcases. To notice what had happened and to give the alarm immediately was a man who was on the correct platform and saw a head appear and then disappear at the departure of the train.
The woman was on the platform between platform 17 and 18 while the Frecciargento Milan-Lecce train left.
The woman was immediately taken in red code to the Niguarda Hospital where, however, the health workers were unable to save her life, while Polfer, firefighters and 118 rescuers arrived at the accident site.
