Glacier Express derailed in the Swiss Alps on Friday, July 23, 2010.
It happened near the town of Fiesch and the mouth of the Aletsch glacier.
The Aletsch glacier is Europe’s largest icemass.
The train was on a journey between Zermatt and St. Moritz.
1 person was killed and 42 people were injured.
Train accident is very rare in Switzerland.
Glacier Express is a very popular tourist train in Switzerland.
It has very big windows so that the passengers can see the beautiful Alps mountains, glaciers, streams and other wonderful things around.
The Glacier Express is known for its majestic mountain climbs.
It is called the “slowest express train in the world”.
It travels at an average speed of 18 mph (30 kph).

The world is getting hotter and hotter.
Ice melt on the mountains.
The ice at the North Pole and South Pole are melting.
The sea level rises up.
The houses by beach hit by the wave and flooded.
I read that some islands are sinking.
Some places in Alaska are also sinking.
Some part of Kenya are having a bad drought.
When there is no water animals and plants were dead.
There will be no food for the people and they will die too.
This is a disaster.
We must stop it!
We must heal the world and make it a better place.
Now there is a United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark and I hope they can find ways to heal the world so that I can go to Sudan.
