BREAKING NEWS:  A Metro-North commuter train has derailed in the Bronx. At least four of the train’s seven or eight cars jumped the tracks and one came perilously close to entering the Hudson River (as seen in the top screencap from WNBC TV in New York.) Multiple injuries are reported and an eyewitness reports having seen at least one dead body. According to WCBS 880, the train was a 5:50 train out of Poughkeepsie, NY and was entering a stretch of track that goes into a very tight turn cut through the rock near the Spuyten Duyvil station, where a cargo train derailed in July 2013.
