The last two carriages of a Beijing subway train detached from the rest of the train Thursday evening. A total of 515 people were sent to the hospital for examination, including 102 fractures and no deaths. As of 6 o'clock this morning, 423 people have been discharged from the hospital, 25 people are under observation, and 67 people are hospitalized.

Beijing Subway announced the incident on its social media platform, stating that firefighters and ambulances are at the scene on the Changping Line. Injured passengers are being evacuated to a nearby station and provided with materials to stay warm.

The incident occurred at around 7 pm during the evening rush hour on a snowy day in an aboveground section of the line. Partial operation of the line continued.

The Changping Line, linking Beijing's downtown area with Changping district, carries nearly 400,000 passenger trips daily during workdays and operates trains with six carriages. The cause of the detachment is currently under investigation.
