Berazategui, Argentina – A horrifying incident unfolded on Saturday, June 24, as two teenage sisters were tragically run over by a train at the Berazategui station. The dramatic event was captured on video by a witness using a cellphone, leading to the intervention of the Berazategui First Police Station and the Functional Instruction Unit.
The incident occurred at approximately 4:20 p.m. at the Berazategui station when the two young women were struck by a train approaching from Ezpeleta at the 14th Avenue level crossing. Emergency services were immediately called to the scene, but sadly, one of the sisters died instantly, while the other succumbed to her injuries hours later.
The video footage, which has been widely shared, reveals a heartbreaking sequence of events. It shows one of the adolescents deliberately jumping in front of the moving train, while the other sister desperately tries to pull her back to safety. Tragically, both were unable to evade the approaching train, which was unable to slow down in time.
The victims of this devastating incident have been identified as Blanca Alexia Villagra (14) and Giuliana Yasmín Villagra (16). Authorities are currently evaluating various hypotheses to ascertain what transpired. One possibility being considered is that it may have been a misjudged game involving crossing the tracks before the train arrived. Another hypothesis is that it could have been a suicide, with the first sister jumping onto the tracks and the other attempting to save her. Lastly, the incident may have been an unfortunate accident.
In the aftermath of the tragedy, train services to and from Plaza Constitución were canceled and experienced delays of over two hours. Meanwhile, authorities diligently worked to investigate the incident and determine the circumstances that led to this heartbreaking loss of life.
This devastating event has left the community in shock, and the authorities are providing support to the affected families during this difficult time. Investigations are ongoing to shed light on the exact cause of the incident and to prevent such tragedies from occurring in the future.
