A woman and her two children were killed when they stood in front of an oncoming train outside Eerste River in Western Cape.

“They stood right in the middle of the track and we suspect it may have been suicide,” Metro Rail regional manager Lindelo Matya said.

“It is suspicious that it happened at 5am (today) when it’s slightly dark and in an area that people don’t normally cross.”

Matya said trains bound for Strand were affected as they had to be re-routed to one line.

An inquest docket had been opened by the police.
