New York’s Metro-North train derailed along with its locomotive and carriages as the train went faster into a bend in the railway line. The train was from Poughkeepsie to Grand Central Station. The derailment had occurred at 07:20 near Spuyten Duyvil station.
About 130 firefighters from Fire Department of New York are at the site of derailment and helping bloodily injured passengers out of the carriages.
Pictures from the scene showed the carriages were lying close to the adjacent Hudson or Harlem rivers, but the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) have informed that none of them gone into the rivers.
One of the passenger Frank Tatulli told WABC-TV, “the train appeared to be going “a lot faster” than normal as it approached the curve coming into the station.”
New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo is at the scene and confirmed that four people had died and 63 had been injured, 11 of them critically.
Metro-North rail serves New York City’s northern suburbs commuters and is not part of the New York City subway system. The MTA have informed that Hudson Line services have been suspended.
