A passenger train in New York has derailed, killing four people and causing “multiple injuries”, the Fire Department has said. The FDNY said 63 people were injured after the train hurtled off the tracks in the Bronx at 7:20am on Sunday near the Spuyten Duyvil station. At least 130 firefighters are on the scene, the fire department said. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority said four or five carriages on the seven-carriage train derailed about 100 yards north of the station on a curved section of the track. But the MTA said none of the carriages entered the Hudson or Harlem rivers, which are adjacent. Edwin Valero, who was in an apartment building above the accident scene when the train derailed, told the Associated Press news agency that none of the carriages went into a nearby body of water, but at least one ended up a few feet from the edge. Witness Rebecca Schwartz told AP that she was at a nearby park when the accident occurred. She said she did not see or hear the derailment but looked across the water when she heard emergency vehicle sirens. She said numerous emergency vehicles had responded to the scene
