Deadly train crash in Philadelphia

I'm on the scene of the fatal train crash in Philadelphia. A Northeast Regional Amtrak train derailed shortly after leaving Philadelphia's 30th Street Station. Six of the cars were turned on their sides. As of this posting, five people are dead, more than 140 injured.  Amtrak says there were 238 passengers and five crew members on board at the time. So many were hurt that city buses were pressed into service because they ran out of ambulances. Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter says the utter destruction is something he's never seen before in his life. The NTSB is leading the investigation.

I'm covering the story for 1010 WINS.

There are certain point in our life that we encounter failure but it doesn't mean you will lose hope and give up everything but it only means that every failure there's an exchange and that is new beginning. Well, thank you for sharing your article and keep on posting. Visit my site too for more information.
