Photos: Train Derailment Response in New York City

On the last day of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, a Metro-North train derailed in the Bronx, tragically taking the lives of four individuals and injuring dozens of people. American Red Cross workers have been at the crash site since this morning, helping passengers, first responders and other relief workers.

The Red Cross provided emotional support, food and blankets to a number of passengers before they were taken to local hospitals. Licensed Red Cross mental health workers also provided compassionate support at a reception center that was opened at nearby JFK High School for passengers and family members. Food and beverages were also provided by the Red Cross at the center.

Red Cross teams have been and will remain at the crash site on an ongoing basis, working through the night to support first responders with meals and water.
