Mass casualty incidents (MCI) in this day and age represent a special challenge, which initially require on-site coordination and logistics and then a professional distribution of victims (triage) to surrounding hospitals. Technical, logistical and even specialist errors can impair this flow of events. It therefore seems advisable to make a detailed analysis of every MCI. In this article the railway incident from 9 February 2016 is analyzed taking the preclinical and clinical cirumstances into consideration and conclusions for future management are drawn. As a special entity it could be determined that fixed table units in passenger trains represent a particularly dangerous hazard and in many instances in this analysis led to characteristic abdominal and thoracic injuries.
