Amtrak Crash: 8 Confirmed Dead

Search teams recovered a body from the mangled wreckage of an Amtrak derailment in north Philadelphia on Thursday morning, bringing to eight the number of people killed when train 188 to New York from Washington DC went off the rails on Tuesday night.
Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter confirmed the new death toll at a press conference early on Thursday afternoon and, for the first time, said the authorities and agencies working on the emergency now believed that all 243 individuals aboard the passenger services had been accounted for.
