Train Derail in New York

At least four people were killed and dozens more were injured in a trail derailment early Sunday morning.  The train was on a curved section of the track making the train lose control and fall over.  Most of the people who died in the accident were ejected from the train.  The train operator told investigators that he applied the breaks but they did not work.  One survivor said that the windows broke out and gravel came into our faces, others saying they did not know if they were going to survive and it felt like it was in slow motion.  Rescue workers used jacks and air bags to lift cars and help stranded passengers out.  “I heard this horrible, whooshing sound.  It was very disturbing, very loud,” said Hank Goldman who lives near the train derailment.
