Passenger rain jumps rails in Chicago
(03-24 19:01)

An eight-car US commuter train derailed early today at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, injuring 32 people on board. It failed to stop at an underground station at one of the busiest airports in the United States.
Chicago fire officials said the train “climbed over the last stop, jumped up on the sidewalk and then went up the stairs and escalator.''
The derailment happened around 2:50 a.m.—AP
