NEW YORK - 4 people are dead and at least 67 others injured (11 of them seriously) after a train derailed in the Bronx. Martha Shade has an EXCLUSIVE interview with a passenger on board. Rescue workers in New York swarmed an area in the Bronx where a commuter train jumped the tracks shortly after 7am Sunday morning. The train was on its way to Grand Central Station from Poughkeepsie, 100 miles north of New York City. As you can see, at least 2 train cars are flipped on their sides while the others lie twisted and mangled. An EXCLUSIVE photo shows what one passenger saw from inside the wreckage. The accident happened just feet away from the Harlem River. Divers combed the waters for bodies and possible survivors.

Other victims were taken to local hospitals. In July, a freight train derailed near this same area and federal officials are also investigating a collision that happened in Connecticut between 2 Metro North trains in May. So far investigators are not saying whether any of those incidents are related.
