Kevin Mendoza, 24, was looking for his father in various hospitals.

Just over five minutes on foot separate the two main places where pain and indignation were mixed in equal parts this Tuesday after the tragedy that occurred last night in the Mexico City subway.

At least 24 people died and dozens were injured after the collapse of a stretch of elevated track of line 12 between the Olivos and Tezonco stations, in the southeast of the capital.

Throughout this Tuesday, hundreds of neighbors gathered in the area still incredulous and shocked by what happened.

“This was seen coming, because it was a very horrible creaking that was heard here when the subway circulated “, Adelfo Solano, a 77-year-old retired resident of the area, told BBC Mundo.
