Fox News is reporting that surgeons from surrounding hospitals were called to the scene because of the fear that so many serious injuries could not be transported to hospitals fast enough. The wreckage was described by rescue worked as "mangled" as they worked through the night to pull out trapped passengers, put out a fire under the trains, and transport the wounded. Over 200 were reportedly on the train when the wreck occurred. More fatalities are possible as crews continue to search the wreckage.
I heard this morning that the death toll was up to 25. Apparently, a train operator did not obey a stop signal.
Thanks, Ron. From what I am hearing, the number of those killed may rise because many were so severely injured. How very sad for those folks.
