Worshippers remember victims of train accident

16-08-2008

Some two hundred people attended a special mass to commemorate the victims of last Friday’s train accident near the town of Studénka in which seven people were killed and dozens more injured. The worship took place in a church in Studénka and it was led by Bishop František Lobkowitz, who expressed his thanks to the rescue workers.

The police on Friday filed charges against two civil engineers who were in charge of the reconstruction of a bridge near the town of Studénka that collapsed onto the rail tracks. The police say the two engineers knew the static of the bridge was impaired and did not take sufficient measures to prevent it from collapsing on the tracks.
