Possible terrorist attack on Amtrak train in Philadelphia. At least 5 dead

4 posts in this topic

"It is an absolute disastrous mess," Nutter said. "Never seen anything like this in my life."

The mayor added that there were train cars that were "completely overturned, on their side, ripped apart."

"It is a devastating scene down there," he said. "We walked the entire length of the train area, and the engine completely separated from the rest of the train, and one of the cars is perpendicular to the rest of the cars. It's unbelievable."

Amtrak released a statement early Wednesday saying it was "deeply saddened by the loss of life". The company earlier announced that service between New York and Philadelphia had been suspended indefinitely and that people seeking information about friends or relatives on the train could call a special hotline at 1-800-523-9101.
