This afternoon at least 34 people were killed and more than 20 seriously injured when a speeding underground train ran off the tracks and overturned
"Two train carriages derailed and toppled over in a tunnel just before entering the Jesus underground station after a wheel broke on a curve at about 1 p.m., officials said."
A survivor from one of the carriages described how he made his escape through a door window.
"There was a bang, some very strange noises, everything shook and I passed out. They told me when the firemen came. I don't know how long they took, but that's when I got up". From Yahoo News
I travelled on the underground in Valencia about two years ago and my sympathies are with the families of the dead and also wish the injured a good recovery. Spain is still very shaky following the train bombings by Islamist extremists that killed 191 people in Madrid in 2004. However, this appears to have been a tragic accident and doubtless more news will be uncovered as the day progresses.
