All 13 cars derailed and four of them overturned before catching on fire.
“A lot of people were squashed on the bottom. We tried to squeeze out of the bottom of the wagons to get out and we realized the train was burning,” passenger Ricardo Montesco told radio station Cadena SER. “I was in the second wagon and there was fire. I saw corpses.”
“There are bodies lying on the railway track. It's a Dante-esque scene,” Nunez told SER, the AFP news agency reported.
