NYC Subway Derailment Injures 19

Queens was the site of the derailment of the F Train. It was travelling along its trajectory and the passengers were the usual commuters who wanted to reach their destinations. 

However, soon the journey began to resemble a rollercoaster ride. The jolts and bumps kept getting larger and larger till everyone on board was in a state of panic. 

Several people who were in the train hit the floor and incurred severe injuries. Soon the train came to a halt and by the look of it things were not right. The middle six cars had undergone a disturbance and displacement. 

Besides the 19 injured, four of whom were reported to be suffering seriously, over a thousand had to be rescued from the tough situation they found themselves in. 

One of the passengers spoke of how everyone was so scared and almost expected that the inevitable would happen and the train would keel over. But it was a miracle that such a scenario never unfolded. 

30 years old Bryan Greene, who was heading to his office in Union Square, told NYTimes: “Nobody really knew whether or not the train was going to roll. Everyone was waiting for that moment to come, and when it didn’t, it was a sigh of relief.”

Rescue efforts went on for a total time span of two hours. During this period, the rescue workers did all they could to court passengers to safety from the interior of the train. 

While most of the injuries are not of loss of limb or life, they have still affected the passengers deeply. Asthma-like symptoms and pain in the chest region were reported. 

“It was unclear what caused the derailment, the most serious on the New York City subway system since 1991,” according to transit officials. 

Why the train underwent derailment remains a mystery. The track appeared to have been mangled somewhat but otherwise there was no distorted structures in the subway. 

An official investigation is to be conducted regarding the real causes of the accident. The passengers are scared after this brush with a health hazard and want a guarantee that no such mistake would occur from the train conductor’s side in the future.
