At least 6 dead in Paris train crash


www.usatoday.com

BRETIGNY-SUR-ORGE, France (AP) — France's Interior Ministry has lowered the death toll in a train derailment outside Paris to six and says nine people have been gravely injured.

The SNCF said the train was carrying about 385 passengers when it derailed Friday evening at 5:15 p.m. (11:15 a.m. EDT) and crashed into the station at Bretigny-sur-Orge, about 12 miles south of Paris. The train was headed from Paris to Limoges, a 250-mile journey and was about 20 minutes into what would have been a three-hour journey.

I searched and didn't find a thread about this yet. I'm amazed that of the 385 passengers only 6 have been confirmed dead? I would have thought there would be more casualties, not that I wanted there to be, it's just that I figured a train full of people crashing would've caused more deaths. The death toll isn't 100% yet, hopefully it stays where it is, if not lowering again.


Oops, when looking for images I came across a link to another thread, mods please delete, sorry.
