Amritsar, India - train hits crowd, kills dozens

October 19, 2018, 7:10 PM, Amritsar, India

ADDENDUMN 10/20: Wikipedia now has a page. It lists the exact location as 31N37'51" 74W53'50", so all the charts below need minor tweaks. They give the timing as "around 18:45 IST," but I'm inclined to trust the local paper's report of 7:10 PM, especially since 18:45 is an approximation; however, 6:45 does place the 0°09' Mercury-Mars square exactly on local angles (Mars within 0°05', Mercury about 1°). The article gives a few more details. ... n_incident

At least 60 people died, and over 100 more were injured, when a commuter train ran through a crowd of hundreds of people standing on the tracks watching the burning of an effigy of the demon Ravana during a Dussehra festival celebration. Dismembered body parts littered the tracks. The noise of celebration, including fireworks, evidently drowned out the sound of the approaching train.

Amritsar BTW already has its place in the SMA canon: It was the site of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre in 1919.

The videos all show night scenes, and the festival (complete with fireworks) is celebrated at night. The effigy burning usually occurs near sunset, which was approximately 6 PM, but darkness would have taken a while - I'll estimate 7 PM as a working time until something else appears. (The Hindu, a local paper, lists 7:10 PM, I now see - so the estimate is correct. It also says 61 dead and 71 injured.)
