50 people were poisoned and one person died due to the leak caused by the derailment of a freight train carrying ammonia in southeastern Serbia.
A freight train carrying ammonia has derailed on the Niš-Dmitrovgrad railway in the city of Beirut, in southeastern Serbia. Due to the leakage in the overturned carriage, 51 people were hospitalized with symptoms of poisoning. Serbian state television announced the death of a person who was taken to hospital.
After the incident, which occurred at around 17.30 local time yesterday, the authorities warned residents of the area to leave the house.
Reduced visibility on the international highway leading to Bulgaria due to the leak led to many accidents. Police directed vehicles on the road, which was heavily trafficked due to the Christmas holidays, to alternative routes.
