A Metro North train derailed along the Hudson River, about 100 feet north of the Spuyten Duyvil station in the Bronx early Sunday.
Four people were killed while sixty-three others were injured in the accident.
The train was travelling to the New York’s Grand Central Station from Poughkeepsie, New York.
Yahoo News reported that Aaron Donovan, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), said that the derailment occurred at approximately 7:20 a.m.
In the tragic incident, five of the train’s seven cars were derailed, but none went into the Hudson River.
It is reported that the MTA identified the victims as 54-year-old Donna L. Smith of Newburgh; 58-year-old James G. Lovell of Cold Spring; 59-year-old James M. Ferrari of Montrose; and 35-year-old Ahn Kisook of Queens.
