  • Such tragic incident indeed !
    My thought and prayers go out to the families who lost their loved ones.
    Hope & pray those who’re injured will recover well.


  • I, myself, have been through 2 episodes of anxiety and depression. First when we lost our 28weeks old baby then after our third baby was born the whole episode re occurred.
    Going out there talking and looking for help is the first and best step you can take. I empathise with anyone and everyone who has been through it. It’s a difficult journey.


  • So tragic.
    R.I. P. mum and child and I am praying for your daughter to survive and be ok.


  • Here’s hoping the others recover quickly. So very sad


  • So šad, not only for the family but the emergency services responders who have to help out.


  • Too many tragic accidents recently. One is one too many. I am glad next-of-kin have been notified before the report was released first.
    In some cases where there is injuries that doesn’t always happen, especially when the media take photos and show them on TV news. People don’t want to see their loved ones being wheeled into a hospital on an Ambulance stretcher before they are advised. I pesonally know a guy who was injured and his family found about it first via Media.


  • Tragic tragic news. RiP x


  • So sad to hear this,my thoughts are with the family.


  • Oh no how sad. R.I.P. condolences to all that love them
