  • Subway tunnel was flooded in the city of Zhengzhou, China.
  • Subway workers evacuated 500 from flooded train.
  • 12 people could not be rescued and died in the flood.

According to a statement posted on Chinese social network Weibo by Henan regional authorities, at least 12 people died and 5 were injured when a subway tunnel was flooded in the city of Zhengzhou, the administrative center of east-central China’s Henan province.

Heavy rains in Henan caused water to amass in large amounts at a parking lot above a section of Zhengzhou subway’s Line 5. Eventually, the floodwater found its way into the tunnel.

Subway administration urgently halted train traffic and cut all power, but one train stopped at a flooded section of the tunnel.
