Sixteen people, including two children, were crushed to death under a train in western India, a local railway official said Thursday.

The accident took place late Wednesday night near the city of Surat in Gujarat state, railway police officer H.M. Patel told The Associated Press.

The bodies of the victims, who had disembarked at Surat and were walking along the railroad tracks, were seen by the driver of another train, Patel added.

Those killed were believed to be poor migrant laborers from the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, he said. It was not immediately clear why they were walking on the tracks.
