Canada Train Disaster Update: Toll Of Missing And Dead Climbs To 60

Category: World / Jul 10, 2013 3:34PM EDT

Police in Canada confirmed on Wednesday that 60 are dead or missing, climbing from 50 after a train derailed and exploded in Quebec. Michael Forget the Police Inspector commented on the tragedy:

"The number of people that have been found has unfortunately not changed. We still have only 15 bodies recovered. Amongst others we have about some 60 individuals that have been reported missing."

The train crash caused mass chaos destroying dozens of buildings turning this historic town of Quebec into a warzone: The run-away train that derailed and blew up forced the evacuation of 2,000 people, as many are still left without power or water.

Investigators are now searching for clues as it why this happened, and hope that most of the missing are found alive.
