A New York City train accident killed four passengers and injured at least 67 on Sunday. Witnesses recounted a surreal experience, saying they didn't know if they'd live or die.
"I really didn't know if I would survive," said passenger Amanda Swanson. "The train felt like it was on its side and dragging for a long time."
Perhaps the most horrifying thing about the train accident is that it was foreseeable. A freight train derailed on the same section of tracks in July. Despite multiple derailments, officials insist that the stretch of railway is safe, perhaps hinting that train conductor negligence was the biggest factor in the fatal accident.
