Dozens injured in New York subway train derailment
Dozens of people were injured Tuesday when two New York subway train cars careened off the tracks, leaving hundreds of people stuck for more than an hour, a fire department spokesman said. The incident which occurred mid-morning on the A train line between two stations in Harlem in northern Manhattan -- left 36 people with minor injuries, the spokesman told AFP. Evacuating everyone from the underground station took more than an hour and a half, he said. The cause of the derailment, which continued to disrupt traffic throughout the day, was not immediately clear.
