New York, Jan 4: A Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) commuter train derailed at Atlantic Termil in Brooklyn, New York, at the height of Wednesday’s morning rush, injuring more than three dozen people and smashing glass on the platform, the media reported.
Fire officials said 37 people suffered non-life threatening injuries when the train ploughed into the termil around 8.30 am (local time), reported ABC News.
Passengers described the train pulling into the station, followed by a crash and a loud boom, after which the train’s doors opened.
“I don’t know, all I remember is being on the floor,” one woman passenger who had been on the train said. (IANS)
