The telescoping of the ends of the de railed coaches caused most of the fa talities, nearly all of which occurred in the first two cars.

Their efforts were fruitless in the case of some of the victims whose bodies were so firmly wedged in the shattered remains of the coaches that it took a wrecking crew hours to release them.
