MEXICO CITY (apro).– The Metro Collective Transportation System (STC) reported that it will speed up the procedures for the collection of life insurance and pension for the relatives of Rafael Murias Quijano, station chief inspector who died, presumably electrocuted, on Monday the 5th at the Oceania station on Line B.
He added that the administrative area has remained “pending” the needs of the family of the deceased since the day of the incident.
In an information card, the agency detailed that on Tuesday the 6th, the general director of the Metro, Guillermo Calderín, accompanied the relatives at the Institute of Expert Services and Forensic Sciences and also at the funeral home.
Meanwhile, officials from the Metro and from the Executive Commission for Attention to Victims (Ceavi) attended the worker’s burial today, according to the Metro.
Finally, he assured that the Legal area remains attentive to requests for information from the Mexico City Attorney General’s Office (FGJCDMX) for the integration of the investigation folder of the case.
Electrocution, the cause
On Monday the 5th, around 2:20 p.m., Rafael Murias Quijano, chief inspector of the Oceanía station, died while maneuvering on the tracks of the Oceanía-Deportivo Oceanía interstation on Line B in the company of another worker.
According to El Universal, the autopsy performed on the Metro worker determined that the cause of death was electrocution.
On Tuesday the 6th, a video was leaked on social networks showing the two workers in the area of tracks without protective equipment. Recordings show a man in a white shirt trying to help Rafael, in a black shirt, cross a road. However, he apparently slips and pulls his partner. Both fall between the tracks. Rafael no longer gets up despite his partner’s attempts to revive him.
That same day, relatives of the victim accused that the incident was due to the fact that adequate security conditions did not exist to work due to the lack of maintenance and that Murias had already commented on the irregularities beforehand. Therefore, they asked that his death be investigated as a culpable homicide and not as a work accident.
The FGJCDMX reported that it initiated an investigation folder for the alleged culpable homicide of Rafael Murias Quijano and the injuries of the other worker. The Metro said that it made available to the corresponding authorities the maintenance logs, the authorizations for descents to tracks, the records of programmed descents that were not authorized and the recordings for “clarification of the fact”.
