  • Un migrant meurt électrocuté à la frontière italo-française (29.08.2021)

    Un jeune Bangladais de 17 ans est mort dimanche près de Vintimille, à la frontière italo-française. L’adolescent a été électrocuté alors qu’il était monté sur un train en direction de la France.

    Il avait 17 ans et était originaire du Bangladesh. Un jeune homme est mort dimanche 29 août en début d’après-midi à la frontière italo-française, a indiqué l’agence de presse italienne Ansa (https://www.infomigrants.net/en/post/34723/young-migrant-electrocuted-on-train-roof-near-italyfrance-border). Il avait tenté d’atteindre la France en montant sur le toit d’un train depuis la ville frontalière de Vintimille quand il a été électrocuté.

    Le corps de l’adolescent a été récupéré par les pompiers et emmené à la morgue après l’alerte donnée par le conducteur du train. Le maire de la ville de Vintimille, Gaetano Scullino, s’est rendu sur les lieux du drame et a exprimé sa « grande consternation face à cette tragédie ».

    Pour éviter d’autres accidents, l’édile a demandé à la ligne ferroviaire italienne de mettre en place une « équipe pour contrôler les trains à l’arrivée et au départ de Vintimille, en collaboration avec la police des chemins de fer ».

    Des milliers de migrants tentent chaque année de rejoindre la France depuis l’Italie voisine, en montant dans des trains ou en marchant le long des voies ou de l’autoroute. Ces tentatives de traversée de la frontière peuvent parfois être fatales. Ces dernières années, au moins 20 exilés sont morts dans cette zone frontalière.
    Une traversée risquée

    En 2016 notamment, plusieurs décès avaient été recensés. En septembre de cette année-là, les autorités françaises avaient découvert le corps sans vie d’un migrant sous un viaduc de l’autoroute A8, à proximité de la frontière. Le mois suivant, une Érythréenne de 17 ans avait été renversée par un camion au bord d’une autoroute, près de Menton, en France. En décembre, un Algérien de 25 ans avait perdu la vie, renversé par un train non loin de Vintimille, alors qu’il traversait les voies de chemin de fer.

    Pour atteindre la France depuis l’Italie, d’autres personnes empruntent un itinéraire différent, via les Alpes. Mais là aussi, franchir cette frontière naturelle est très risquée et provoque des drames. En juin, une enquête avait été ouverte pour « disparition inquiétante » après plusieurs heures de recherches infructueuses près de Briançon pour retrouver un migrant soudanais. Le jeune homme, dont le groupe s’est perdu pendant deux jours en montagne sans eau ni nourriture, aurait basculé dans une pente en tentant d’échapper à la police.

    • Young migrant electrocuted on train roof near Italy-France border

      A 17-year-old migrant who was trying to reach the border with France on a train’s roof in the area of Peglia, a town near Ventimiglia in Italy, was electrocuted. At least 20 migrants have died in just a few years while trying to cross the border with France.

      He was 17 and came from Bangladesh. His was headed to France but he died on the roof of a French train in Italy. The incident occurred in the early afternoon of Sunday, August 29, inside a tunnel in the area of Peglia, near the border city of Ventimiglia (Imperia).

      The driver stopped the train in a desperate attempt to save the teen’s life after he saw him jump on the roof as soon as the train departed from the station of the border town.

      When rescuers recovered the teen’s body, they found a paper with his date of birth and nationality and a request to report to a police station. The 17-year-old had climbed onto a rail car and got too close to the power line, rescuers said.
      ’Huge dismay for this tragedy’

      The youth’s body was recovered by firefighters. Railway traffic with France was shut down for over an hour during the operation. The teen’s body was taken to the morgue. Along with firefighters, forensic police, Polfer railway police and rescuers, Ventimiglia Mayor Gaetano Scullino rushed to the scene, expressing “huge dismay for this tragedy”.

      He asked Italian railway line RFI for “the stable presence of a company team to control trains arriving and departing from Ventimiglia, in collaboration with railway police.”
      20 ascertained deaths in the last few years

      At least 20 migrants have been reported dead in just a few years as they were attempting to cross into France. One of them was a 17-year-old Eritrean, Milet Tesfamariam, who died after she was run over by a truck on October 9, 2016 inside a highway gallery just a few meters from Menton.

      Exactly a month before, French authorities discovered the body of another migrant who was found dead under a viaduct of the A8 highway near the French-Italian border.

      Another fatality reported in 2016, on October 22, involved a foreigner who was run over by a car as he was crossing the A8 highway in Menton.

      On December 23 the same year, a 25-year-old Algerian man died when he was run over by a train in Latte, near Ventimiglia, as he was trying to reach France on foot, walking along the tracks.

      Another migrant died in the same way a few days later, run over by a train as he was crossing the tracks of the railway line connecting Ventimiglia to Cannes, inside the Mortola gallery in Ventimiglia.

      Thousands of migrants each year attempt to cross the border through Col de Mort, the so-called ’death pass’, climbing onto rail cars or walking along tracks or the highway. Many rely on traffickers who abandon them in the moment of danger after they are paid a large sum for a trip that, too often, has no end.

  • 21.10.2016 Un jeune migrant tué sur l’autoroute près de Menton

    C’est l’une des routes d’entrée vers la France et l’espoir d’un monde meilleur. Un jeune migrant d’origine africaine a été tué samedi dans la nuit sur l’autoroute A8 à proximité de Menton (Alpes-Maritimes) après avoir été percuté par une voiture et être tombé d’un viaduc, selon Nice-Matin. C’est le troisième à mourir sur cet axe rapide depuis début septembre.

    Projeté par-dessus le parapet

    L’identité de la victime n’a pas encore pu être établie et l’enquête a été confiée à la gendarmerie. L’accident s’est produit vers une heure du matin lorsqu’une automobiliste se dirigeant vers l’Italie a percuté la personne au sortir d’un tunnel, avant le viaduc de Sainte-Agnès. Le jeune homme a été projeté par dessus le parapet et son corps, retrouvé par les secours en contrebas.

    Selon les gendarmes, plusieurs personnes avaient déjà été signalées en début de nuit sur cette portion d’autoroute empruntée par les migrants pour passer clandestinement d’Italie en France, certaines ayant été récupérées et emmenées au poste de la police aux frontières.

    En septembre dernier, ce même viaduc avait déjà été le lieu d’un accident mortel lorsqu’un migrant, à la vue d’une patrouille de gendarmerie, avait sauté sans voir le vide en dessous. Plus récemment, le 7 octobre, une jeune Erythréenne de 17 ans avait été tuée sur la même autoroute, mais côté italien, après avoir été percutée par un poids lourd.

  • 29.08.2021 : Ventimiglia : tenta di raggiungere la Francia sul tetto del treno, migrante morto folgorato

    Tragedia lungo la ferrovia italo-francese poco dopo la stazione di Ventimiglia dove un uomo, che era salito sul tetto di un convoglio passeggeri diretto in Francia, è rimasto folgorato. E’ successo intorno alle 11.30 di questa mattina; dalle prime informazioni si tratterebbe di un migrante, che stava cercando di passare il confine nascosto sul tetto di un treno. Sul posto, dopo l’ultima galleria ferroviaria di Ventimiglia, sono intervenuti i vigili del fuoco, la Polfer e la polizia scientifica.Il treno coinvolto è un convoglio francese. Nel tratto i cavi dell’alta tensione arrivano ai 1500 volt e per l’uomo non c’è stato nulla da fare, è morto sul colpo. La circolazione ferroviaria italiana non ha subito variazioni, quella francese è rimasta bloccata per permettere i rilievi e intorno alle 13.44 è stato riattivato un binario.

  • I morti di confine a Ventimiglia

    Sono già 11 in pochi mesi gli incidenti mortali causati della chiusura della frontiera francese a Ventimiglia. Annegati, investiti, precipitati, fulminati, i migranti muoiono tentando di attraversare, oppure si perdono e si feriscono in luoghi pericolosi. Ecco il primo di tre reportage di Michele Luppi e Andrea Quadroni sulle morti di confine, con una mappa interattiva dei luoghi dove queste persone sono rimaste uccise tentando di attraversare.

    • ’Erano solo ragazzi’. A Ventimiglia il ’’no ai muri’’ si fa ricordo dei migranti morti nei viaggi della speranza

      «Erano solo ragazzi». Qualcuno, ascoltando i nomi letti e le età, prova ad immaginare i volti e le storie dei giovani morti nel tentativo di varcare il confine italo-francese e conclude così: erano ragazzi, giovani non tanto diversi dai nostri, dalla generazione-Erasmus che ha cancellato i confini dal proprio orizzonte culturale.

    • Depuis 2015, une vingtaine de personnes migrantes, dont plusieurs mineures, sont mortes à la frontière franco-italienne, comme ce fut le cas de #Milet début octobre 2016, jeune érythréenne de 17 ans, percutée par un poids lourd dans un tunnel entre Vintimille et Menton. Ses obsèques ont été célébrées par l’évêque de San Remo en l’église de San Antonio à Vintimille, où elle avait dormi la veille de sa mort. Grâce aux dons des nombreuses personnes venues lui rendre hommage, le corps de Milet a été rapatrié à Asmara en Erythrée.

    • 29.08.2021, un journal italien fait la liste des personnes décédées à cette frontière depuis 2016 :

      Era il 9 ottobre 2016 quando una ragazza eritrea di appena 17 anni venne travolta e uccisa da un tir mentre camminava all’interno di una galleria dell’autostrada, al confine con la Francia. Si chiamava #Milet_Tesfamariam. Ancora pochi metri di cammino, nel tardo pomeriggio di una giornata autunnale, e avrebbe raggiunto la sua meta. Un sogno spezzato, quello della giovane Milet, il cui corpo è rimasto steso sotto un lenzuolo sull’ultimo cavalcavia prima di Mentone.

      Un mese prima, il 9 settembre 2016 , i francesi avevano recuperato la salma di un altro migrante, trovato morto sotto un viadotto dell’autostrada A8 vicino nei pressi del confine italo-francese, che aveva raggiunto partendo da Ventimiglia.

      Il 22 ottobre, sempre del 2016 , un altro migrante viene travolto e ucciso da un’auto mentre attraversava la carreggiata dell’A8 nei pressi di Mentone. E poi ancora, il 23 dicembre, un algerino di 25 anni viene travolto da un treno, a Latte, frazione di Ventimiglia, mentre a piedi tenta di raggiungere la Francia camminando sui binari.

      Il 27 dicembre 2016 un giovane migrante viene travolto da un treno mentre stava attraversando i binari sulla linea ferroviaria Ventimiglia-Cannes nella galleria della Mortola, a Ventimiglia. All’arrivo dei soccorritori e della Polfer, l’uomo era ancora vivo: morirà durante i tentativi di rianimazione per le profonde ferite riportate.

      Il 4 gennaio 2017 , il 26enne libico #Mohamad_Hani, salta la recinzione del campo per migranti allestito al Parco Roja e viene travolto da un scooter che scooter che stava transitando in quel momento, morendo sul colpo. Una doppia tragedia: dopo alcuni giorni di agonia, muore anche il pensionato italiano alla guida del motociclo.

      Il 5 febbraio del 2017 , un migrante è ucciso, a Ventimiglia, da un treno regionale francese, che procedeva verso l’Italia. Il dramma accade all’interno della galleria “Dogana”, l’ultima prima del confine con la Francia. Solo dodici giorni dopo, il 17 febbraio, un migrante muore folgorato sul tetto di un treno regionale francese in partenza da Ventimiglia: il corpo viene trovato a Cannes.

      Il 21 marzo dello stesso anno , il corpo di un altro migrante viene ritrovato sul versante francese del “passo della morte”.

      Il 13 giugno 2017 , un sudanese non ancora maggiorenne muore annegato nei pressi della foce del fiume Roja: si era gettato in mare per recuperare un paio di scarpe, fatali per lui le correnti in quello specchio acqueo. 
Il 12 luglio a perdere la vita è un 23enne del Gambia: camminava sul marciapiede di Latte, a Ventimiglia. Forse ha messo un piede sulla carreggiata per sbaglio, o forse voleva farla finita dopo l’ennesimo respingimento della Francia: è morto travolto da un’autobetoniera in un pomeriggio assolato a poche centinaia di metri dal confine di Stato.

      Il 16 agosto un migrante iracheno di 36 muore investito da un treno all’imboccatura della galleria di zona Peglia a Ventimiglia.
Il 21 giugno del 2018, a Ventimiglia il mare restituisce il corpo, in avanzato stato di decomposizione, di un migrante, morto annegato.

      Il 9 settembre 2018 , Il corpo senza vita di un migrante, probabilmente di origine nordafricana, viene recuperato dalla Capitaneria di Porto sulla parte esterna della diga foranea del porto di Ventimiglia. Il cadavere si trovava incagliato tra gli scogli a circa 3 metri di profondità.

      L’ 8 ottobre 2020 un migrante muore folgorato in località Latte a Ventimiglia. Ad accorgersi della tragedia è il macchinista, che ferma il convoglio dopo aver visto delle fiamme provenire da una delle carrozze. Il corpo dello straniero giace sul pantografo del treno: per lui non c’è più nulla da fare.

      Il 3 giugno 2021 un migrante muore annegato in una spiaggia di passeggiata Oberdan, a Ventimiglia.

      Pour rappel, aux frontières franco-italienne (à la frontière « basse » des Alpes Maritimes entre Menton et Vintimille ainsi qu’à la frontière « haute » du Briançonnais entre Montgenevre/Oulx/Bardonnechia), ce sont au moins 28 cas de personnes décédées ainsi que 2 disparitions qui ont été recensés depuis 2015 et la décision du gouvernement français de rétablir les contrôles à ses frontières (principalement des cas d’électrocution à bord des trains, de collision avec des trains ou des véhicules sur la voie ferrée Nice-Vintimille ainsi que des cas de chute ou d’hypothermie sur les chemins de montagne dans le Briançonnais).
