I don't have a news link because this just happened a few hours ago. This happened in a town about 20 minutes away where I grew up. Trains carry fertalizer and ammonia up and down the hill to Cominco (big lead smelter) many many many times a day. Today it had freight cars full of amonia and fertalizer. For some reason the train came careening down the hill. Three of the workers managed to leap off the train. The train derailed at the bottom of the hill spilling the contents all over. The one guy who was up in the front car went searching for the other driver and can't find him. They think he is trapped underneath one of the cars. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"> CP rail has a crane large enough to lift the cars....but the crane is located 4 hours driving time away......9 hours crane driving speed away so won't be here until tommorow afternoon. Please please please keep this man in your thoughts and prayers that he isn't trapped underneath the train car lying in ammonia and fertalizer. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
