Elderly woman dies after falling on ISAP tracks

An elderly woman died Tuesday after falling on the tracks at the Ano Patissia station of the Piraeus-Kifissia electric railway (ISAP).

The woman fell onto the tracks as a Piraeus-bound train was approaching at about 4.30 p.m., according to the police and fire service.

The incident led to the temporary suspension of services on a section of the route. It remained unclear whether the fall was an attempted suicide or an accident.
