Engineer Adams Richard, who was on site, said he had never been through a similar situation in his entire life.

I could never imagine a situation completely out of control like this. We spent more than 10 hours on the train with a two-year-old child. We started to see people there who were crying with fear. In the other carriage there were people fainting… It was chaos”

Other people give a different version of what the company claimed.

Lucinéia Marcelino Lourenço, who was also one of the passengers, said that information about the situation had yet to reach people.

“Tiring, huh? You don’t know anything, you have no idea what’s going on, you had no information”, said.

Meanwhile, Norildo Gonçalves criticized the company’s lack of care for passengers.

“There was no water, there was nothing. My wife is diabetic, she was feeling sick, then my daughter too because she didn’t have water, she didn’t have food “
