As of this morning, medical personnel are trying to identify 13 of the 80 people that were killed in the recent deadly train crash in Spain. The bodies are too mangled at this point to get a positive ID.
Overnight, the identity of the one American killed in the crash was revealed – Ana-Maria Cordoba, a Virginia mother who was traveling with her family – according to the Catholic Diocese of Arlington. According to Deputy State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf, at least five other Americans were also injured.
Some estimates suggest the train was moving at 188 mph, more than double the speed limit on the tight turn portion of the track, CNN's Karl Penhaul reports.
The train driver is now under formal investigation. He is being questioned by police but has not been charged.
In America there are still big problems with racism. For example, the Southampton Bathing Club in Southampton Long Island (NY) which Chris Cuomo's wife, Cristina Greeven Cuomo, is reportedly a member of, is famed for not allowing blacks or Jews to join. How can someone belong to such a nazi like club? The Cuomo's surprise me. In England or Italy you don't have this.p.s That means CNN boss Jeff Zucker or Kate Bolduan's husband Michael Gershenson wouldn't be allowed in because they are Jewish! How awful racism is!
