NEW YORK - A passenger train derailment Sunday morning killed at least four people and injured dozens more, officials said.
Firefighters and emergency rescuers swarmed the scene near Spuyten Duyvil station in the Bronx, where at least two train cars had flipped on their sides. One car was just feet away from the Harlem River.
Three of the dead were thrown "as the train came off the track and was twisting and turning," New York Fire Department Chief Edward Kilduff told reporters.
Police divers were in the water hours after the crash searching for survivors, and cadaver dogs combed the wreckage. Authorities believe all the passengers have been accounted for, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo told reporters.
It was unclear how fast the train was traveling and how many passengers were on board.
Federal investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board were headed to the scene.
