Accident or suicide?
At this stage, no hypothesis is favored after the death of a woman who fell on the tracks at the Maisons-Alfort station, this early Saturday afternoon.
About fifteen firefighters were deployed on site to free the person who fell on one of the TGV lines, in the direction Paris-province, as specified by the Paris fire brigade (BSPP).
