SNCF website announces major train disaster

TGV 'explosion' leaves 102 dead, operator claims

7 Elements of Radically Simple OS Migration

French railway operator SNCF has apologised after its website earlier today announced a major disaster involving a TGV, which left 102 dead and 380 injured.

According to French media, the alert just before noon fingered "an explosion of unknown origin today on board TGV 1234, close to Mâcon".

SNCF now admits "this never happened", explaining the message was "part of a technical trial to test crisis management procedures" which "should not have been released". ®
