Deadly Derailment in Spain kills 77, Injures 100

In Spain, an occasion for celebration turned into tragedy overnight.

At least 77 are dead and more than 100 injured after a high-speed passenger train crashed and almost snapped in two in northwestern Spain on Wednesday.

“About a third of the people who got on that train in Madrid yesterday are now dead,” CNN’s Al Goodman reports over the phone.

“A court official tells CNN that number is expected to rise. We’re hearing that they still have some train cars to look at.”

That deadly derailment happened just one day before the patron saint day of St. James, Santiago.

 “There are dozens and dozens of people who wounded on what was supposed to be one of the happiest days of the year…It’s a big tragedy instead.
