With a job ahead and dreams of a lawyer: Flavia, the girl assaulted and thrown from the train, received encouraging news


He is 19 years old and in days he began to work and then began his studies at the UBA. There is still no evidence of the attacker who robbed him when he was traveling to Retiro in Belgrano Norte.

The young woman whose cell phone was stolen at the Villa de Mayo train station, Flavia Antonella Cruzado Leguizamón (19), and was run over by a formation, is evolving favorably and no longer at risk of losing her left leg.

The event occurred on Wednesday, when Flavia was going to the dentist and a thief stole her cell phone inside the train and she got off to chase him.

The sequence ended when Flavia fell onto the Belgrano Norte railroad tracks and, as the formation passed over her, they

had to amputate her right leg. 

A few minutes later, she was transferred to the Federico Abete de Pablo Nogués Trauma Hospital and this Friday at 8:30 p.m. they referred her to the Los Arcos Sanatorium, in Palermo.

There the doctors reviewed her and confirmed her improvement.

"The intensive care doctor told us that he was fine and that it was not necessary to urgently operate on his left leg. The infection he has in that foot will go away with antibiotics," says Alejandra Cruzado Leguizamón (21) in dialogue with



Flavia Cruzado was robbed on a train and then thrown onto the tracks: she lost one of her legs.

And he adds about his younger sister's health situation: "She is still sedated, but stable. They are taking care of her from 10 here."

At the time of the robbery, Flavia was writing a message to her friends.

She was very excited because in a few days she would start working in the cloakroom sector of a bowling alley and thus she would make her dream come true: to

study Law at the University of Buenos Aires (UBA).

His idea was to raise money thanks to his new job to start studying in the City of Buenos Aires.

It was a longstanding wish and it had been two years since he had finished high school.

He was also clear about what specialization he wanted to follow: criminal.

For her older sister, Flavia has the right personality to dedicate herself to this branch of law: "She always liked to speak, express herself, say what she thinks. When she has an opinion, she defends it, she is very determined and has a lot of character to study criminal law" .

Alejandra acknowledges that "despite the trauma that Flavia is experiencing, she knows that her family, the people of the church, her friends, doctors and people from abroad send her strength."

For the entire Cruzado family, the support of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is essential, where Flavia's three sisters and her father, Juan José Cruzado Arquiño (47), work.

Flavia's push made her able to overcome, hour after hour, the difficult moment she has been going through since Wednesday.

Despite the passing of days, there is no progress in the investigation.

"The commissioner came to visit us at the hospital and told us that perhaps on Monday members of the prosecutor's office would pass through Los Arcos," says Alejandra.

Prosecutor Gloria Reguan, in charge of UFI No. 22 of Malvinas Argentinas, is carrying out the investigation.

The Public Ministry analyzes the security cameras of Trenes Argentinos to try to identify the offender.

For now there are no detainees nor have witnesses testified, judicial sources confirmed to



Brenda Bigiatti, another young student assaulted on the Belgrano Norte train.

She was hospitalized for a month.

This type of case is not the first that has happened on that same train line in recent years.

In November 2017, also in the afternoon, Brenda Elizabeth Bigiatti (32) went up to Belgrano Norte bound for Retiro along with five classmates from the Faculty of Medicine. 

At the Don Torcuato station, two stations from where Flavia's robbery occurred, Brenda's cell phone was taken away

and she chased him, but fell off the train while the criminal was fleeing.

The young woman was hospitalized for a month because she suffered a skull fracture, cerebral instability, four broken ribs and an exposed ankle fracture.

And she, like Flavia, was on assisted breathing.

In turn, she had to undergo surgery for a fractured spine.

Shortly after the robbery, Lionel Emil López, now 37 years old, was sentenced to suspended prison for train robberies and was accused of being the one who took Brenda's cell phone.
