Fatal India Train Derailment Leaves More Than 100 Dead
At least 104 people were killed when 14 coaches of an overnight passenger train rolled off the track in northern India early Sunday.
An injured passenger is treated at a hospital in Kanpur on Nov. 20, 2016 after a deadly train derailment near Pukhrayan in Kanpur district, India.
Rescue workers, soldiers and members of India's disaster management force pulled 104 bodies from the wreckage, said Chaudhary, inspector-general of police in Uttar Pradesh state.
Rescue workers search for survivors in the wreckage.
Daljeet Chaudhary, a director general of police, said the death toll was likely to rise because rescue workers had yet to gain access to one of the worst-damaged coaches. About 150 people were injured, he said.
