Three people have been killed in floods in the southwestern German state of Baden-Wuerttemberg, and a young girl was killed by a train as she took shelter from the rain under a railway bridge. A man who was around 60 died in an underground parking garage that filled with water before he was able to escape, said Carsten Dehner, a spokesman at Baden-Wuerttemberg’s interior ministry.

In the town of Schwaebisch Gmuend, a fireman died as he tried to rescue another person, who then also died, Dehner said. Elsewhere in Baden-Wuerttemberg, police said a 13-year-old girl who was probably seeking shelter under a railway bridge was hit and killed by an intercity train. MORE INFO AND PICTURES
