‘I don’t know how I’m going to live without her’, says mother of train accident victim at SIA


Mother of Julia de Albuquerque Violato, 37 years old, who died in the tragedy that occurred this Friday (17/11), in the Industry and Supply Sector (SIA), Ana Rosa de Albuquerque, 72, classified her daughter, in an interview with Mailas “very fearless and courageous”.

“It was my love. Julia was the youngest, she lived with me and was my companion. We did everything together. She was my best travel companion,” she highlighted. “She took care of me, because, despite being an active person, I am elderly. She always said she didn’t want to die before me. She cared about me a lot and loved me so much. I don’t know how I’m going to live without her”, said Ana Rosa.

Julia de Albuquerque graduated in fine arts from the University of Brasília (UnB). “She studied for public exams and worked as a photographer. She lived in Germany for two years, studied at the University of Siena, in Italy, and lived in England for a year,” said her proud mother.

“She was always a very fearless and courageous person, who was looking for her place in the world. In fact, we found out after the accident that she had passed a competition at the Planning Department (Seplad-DF)”, revealed Ana Rosa.

According to her mother, Julia was extremely happy and supportive. “She always brought people together. For her, there was no distinction, anyone could be a friend,” she said. “She also had a lot of political participation. This was as important as the air she breathed”, compared Ana Rosa.

To the Mail, she said that, at no time, did she receive any assistance, either from the Federal District Government or from the bus company. “It was not an accident but a succession of errors and negligence”, says Júlia’s mother, who has already hired a lawyer to sue the GDF, the bus company and the driver. “I’m only going to calm down when everyone is in jail,” she warns.

Ana Rosa lists several points of neglect that contributed to the tragedy. First, the fact that the road on which the bus was traveling did not have a gate with warnings — the kind that the reader has certainly seen in films — to force all cars to stop when trains approach the intersection. Second, the transport company, which does not train drivers for these tickets and maintains traffic violations on its staff. Third, the driver, upon realizing that his vehicle was large, did not stop before the railway line and waited to cross. “GDF carried out the work without worrying about safety and the company didn’t care about it. I will spend every last penny I have to process them”, guarantees Ana Rosa.

The report contacted the GDF to comment on Júlia’s mother’s statements, but did not receive a response until the last update of this article. The space remains open for possible demonstrations.

To the Mailthe Marshal informed that she “deeply regrets the accident” and that “our social workers and psychologists are committed to closely monitoring the case, ensuring all necessary assistance to the victims and their families”.

“Road workers undergo regular training, covering various aspects essential to the safety and well-being of passengers. This training includes defensive driving, human relations, first aid, and other relevant topics,” the company added.
