Woman killed after being knocked down by tram

A woman was killed after being knocked down by the tram in the Las Mantecas area of La Laguna, Metropolitano de Tenerife has confirmed. The poor woman’s death, causes of which are still unknown, occurred on Line 1 heading from La Laguna to Santa Cruz at 12.27 this lunchtime. Initially, the tram service was operating just between the Intercambiador and Hospital Universitario de Canarias (HUC), and another stretch between Guajara and Avenida de La Trinidad, with the intervening points having free buses laid on for passengers until the body could be removed, but as of 2pm, tram authorities say the line has been fully reopened. This is the first fatal accident for the tram service since it came into operation in June 2007. Tranvía de Tenerife has asked for “prudence and respect” in social networks in discussion of the tragedy and its possible causes, which the Policía Nacional are investigating, but did say that the evidence suggests it to be a case of suicide.
