A survivor, Jodie Wickett, described feeling a bump on the track, and then being flung forward when the train suddenly halted a few seconds later. She
said she hit her head, but managed to get out and go to where the collision occurred a few cars up, where one subway car lay atop another.
"There was debris, and people pinned under in-between the two cars," Wickett said. "We were just trying to get them out and help them as much as
possible, pulling back the metal."
People were badly injured, she said. "Ones that could speak were calling back as we called out to them."
One car was "about 75 percent compressed," and recovery workers aren't sure if any more bodies are inside, Fenty told CNN's "Larry King Live" on
"We just haven't been able to cut through it to see if there's bodies in there," Fenty said.
A certified nursing assistant who was on one of the trains told CNN affiliate WUSA she was trying to help those in severe condition after the crash,
including a lady who appeared to be in her 20s.
"She is very, very torn in her legs -- the muscles and everything are torn, ripped through. She had metal pieces in her face," said the nursing
assistant, who said her name was Jeanie.
Other witnesses described seeing more blood than they had seen before.
those poor people.
