A 21-year-old man was killed after being hit by a train on the railway in Portimão on Monday morning (October 8).

According to Correio da Manhã tabloid, the train driver saw Ricardo Rijo da Costa talking on his phone on the track but did not have enough time to stop.

The accident happened near the V6 avenue underpass where many people cross the railway even though there is no pedestrian crossing.

Firefighters and emergency services were called to the scene but there was nothing they could do to save the young man.

PSP and PJ police were at the scene to investigate the incident.

This is the second deadly train accident at the same spot in the last two years, says CM.
