It has been learnt from local media reports that the rescue and relief operations got a jolt of sorts mainly due to the difficult terrain, which made it tough for the ambulance to arrive at the spot of accident.

A national emergency service coordinator informed that four people have been confirmed dead and around 35 people sustained injuries. Sources said that the train derailed near a river. At the time of accident, the train was carrying around 250 to 300 migrants.

The Tabasco state civil protection agency informed that the train went off the tracks at around 3 am (local time) on Sunday and those involved in rescue operations were using hydraulic tools to cut through the metal to trace survivors.
