Two 13-year-old girls were fatally struck by an express train on the Tokyu Oimachi Line in Tokyo’s Shinagawa Ward on Monday evening in an apparent double-suicide, police said.

One of the crew on the train involved saw the second-year junior high school students jump off the platform at Ebara-machi Station together at around 7:20 p.m. They were rushed to a hospital but died shortly after arrival.
