It is reported that at least 30 people were killed in the collision of two trains.
The tragedy reportedly took place in Pakistan, where dozens of people were also injured, and some are still trapped in the rubble.
Local news claims the accident happened between Millat Express and Sir Syed Express flights in Daharqi, Pakistan.
The video was posted on the Internet to show the aftermath of the disaster: the wagons derailed and now lie on their side.
Rescue teams have reportedly been dispatched from Sukkur and Sadikabad and are working on the scene to free those still trapped.
District police chief Umar Tufail confirmed that at least 30 people were killed, but the death toll could rise.
Reported by Dunya Newsciting unnamed sources, the Millat Express was heading to Sargodha from Karachi and Sir Syed Express was heading to Karachi from Lahore.
The publication says the death toll could rise as several passengers are still trapped.
Speaking to Geo News, Ghotki Deputy Commissioner Usman Abdullah said that the accident derailed 13 to 14 bogies and six to eight were “completely destroyed.”
He said that a state of emergency has been declared in the hospitals of Gotka, Dharka, Obaro and Mirpur-Matelo.
Abdullah said it is not immediately clear what caused the crash and subsequent collision.
“This is a difficult task. It will take time to use heavy machinery to free the citizens (still trapped). We are also creating a medical camp to provide medical assistance to citizens, ”he said.
Train crashes in the country are relatively common, and earlier this year, another collision claimed the lives of at least one person and injured dozens more.
Some 30 people were reportedly injured when several carriages of the Karachi Express train to Lahore derailed in March between Mando Dero and Sangi railway stations near Rohri.
It is reported that at least 20 people were killed last July when a Shah Hussein Express train crashed into a car near Sheikhupura in Punjab.
At the time, reports said that those killed were mostly Sikh pilgrims who were returning home from Nankan Sahib.
