A freight train commonly known as “La Bestia” or the “Death Train” has derailed in Mexico. The train is often used by illegal migrants to get near the US-Mexico border. The train derailed in the southern Mexican State of Oaxaca yesterday stranding 1300 people who were riding on top of its boxcars.
Many of those who were riding atop the train were young people yet no one was apparently injured this time which is amazing. The train came off the tracks according to Mexican officials. Heavy rains in southern Mexico might have caused the train to derail officials speculated.
