Speaking to The Chronicle, Bulawayo police spokesperson Inspector Precious Simango confirmed the incident which happened at Luveve railway station on Sunday evening. Said Simango:

We received a report of an alleged suicide concerning a 19-year-old woman and her two-year-old son. It happened in the evening at Luveve railway station. We heard that the deceased pretended that she wanted to board the train and when she saw the train coming, she grabbed her son and sat at the centre of the railway line. We are told that other passengers tried to convince her not to do so, but she refused and she and her baby were run over by the train.
