President Obama released a statement on the tragedy on May 13. Read the full text:
Along with Americans across our country, Michelle and I were shocked and deeply saddened to hear of the derailment aboard Amtrak Train 188. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of those we lost last night, and to the many passengers who today begin their long road to recovery. Along the Northeast Corridor, Amtrak is a way of life for many. From Washington, DC and Philadelphia to New York City and Boston, this is a tragedy that touches us all. As we work to determine exactly what happened, I commend the fire, police and medical personnel working tirelessly and professionally to save lives. Philadelphia is known as the city of brotherly love – a city of neighborhoods and neighbors – and that spirit of loving-kindness was reaffirmed last night, as hundreds of first responders and passengers lent a hand to their fellow human beings in need.’
On the evening of May 12, an Amtrak train travelling from Washington, D.C. to New York City was derailed near Philadelphia. 200 passengers were on board. The severity of the wreck left 6 people dead and more than 100 injured. At the time of reporting, the cause for the tragic accident had not been determined.
Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to everyone affected by this awful tragedy.
