FDNY: 'Multiple Injuries' in NYC Train Derailment
NEW YORK (AP) - The Fire Department of New York says there are "multiple injuries" in a Metro-North passenger train derailment, but the extent of the injuries is unclear.
The FDNY says the train derailment in the Bronx was reported at 7:20 a.m. Sunday near the Spuyten Duyvil station. Photos taken of the accident scene show eight cars derailed.
The fire department says 130 firefighters are on the scene.
Edwin Valero was in an apartment building above the accident scene when the train derailed. He says none of the cars went into the water where the Harlem River meets the Hudson, but at least one ended up a few feet from the edge.
He says he didn't realize the train had turned on its side until he saw a firefighter walking on the window.
