At least three people died in Lagos, Nigeria when a train collided with a public bus.

That's according to an official at the National Emergency Management Agency.

Security guard Ubong Okon witnessed the aftermath of the crash.

"I came out to open the gate, then I saw the train and the bus, I looked inside the bus, there were lots of passengers inside, I went inside and saw people with injuries, there was blood everywhere, then I started to help get people inside the bus out."

Social media footage showed the moment the bus was craned off of the railway track.

Dozens of others were injured and taken to hospital.

Buses of the type involved in the crash can seat about 40 people at full capacity and up to 100 when passengers are standing.
