The woman was overrun and died despite rescue by the fire department and initiated resuscitation by the ambulance still on site. The alleged perpetrator, a police-trained 28-year-old from Hamminkeln, was held by witnesses until the arrival of the police and then arrested. The facts of the case are determined by a murder commission of the police headquarters Duisburg. The train driver as well as witnesses of the incident as well as the relatives of the victim are cared for pastoral care. The railway line had to be closed for the duration of the recovery and forensics. For railway travelers a rail replacement traffic was established.
