Photos: 5 dead, dozens injured as NYC-bound train derails in Philadelphia

Five people have been confirmed dead and 146 others injured after an Amtrak train carrying 248 passengers and five crew members going to New York from Washington DC derailed from its track in Philadelphia, USA yesterday night around 9.45pm. 

Philadelphia Mayor, Michael Nutter while speaking on the incident, said the engine of the train separated from its body while it was on course. See the photos bellow.

“This was an absolute disastrous mess. I have never seen anything like it in my life. Many of these folks are not from Philadelphia. It is a devastating scene down there. We walked the entire length of the train area, and the engine completely separated from the rest of the train, and one of the cars is perpendicular to the rest of the cars. It’s unbelievable. We do not know what happened here. We’re not going to try to speculate about that.” he said

Aso speaking, the Philadelphia Fire Department Deputy Commissioner Jesse Wilson. said

“They’re in pretty bad shape. You can see that they’re completely, completely derailed from the track. They’ve been destroyed completely. The aluminum shell has been destroyed and they’ve been overturned completely.”.
