NEW YORK (AP) — An emergency room doctor says some of the New York City train derailment victims being treated at his hospital are being discharged on Monday.
Dr. David Listman says 12 patients were brought to St. Barnabas Hospital after Sunday’s crash. He says seven patients are being monitored in the ICU.
Listman is director of the hospital’s emergency department.
He says the youngest patient there was a 14-year-old boy who was sent home on Sunday.
He says most of the victims were women in their 40s and 50s. Their injuries range from spinal cord injuries to chest bruising.
The Metro-North commuter train derailed Sunday while rounding a riverside curve in the Bronx. Four people were killed, and more than 60 were injured.
