Transcript for Philadelphia Amtrak Derailment Filmed by Musician Onboard
Glad they're okay. Have a hug like that. Musician yameen allworld joined us a short time ago. Please tell us how you're doing this morning. Yes, I had some minor injuries to my leg actually. And can you tell us, yameen, what happened. What did you see? What did you feel? What did you hear? It just felt like our car was leaving the ground. I started floating in the air and I just felt my body lifting up and going forward over seats and start toppling. And when did help arrive and how did you get out? We could see fairly well. I turned the light on on my cell phone so we could see better and checked on other people. There was a lady stuck in between a chair so we helped her out. You know, I was close to the front of the car so we just walked towards the door and I had just held the light up so people could see and get out. You were posting videos and we heard in your videos, yameen, you helping people and just doing anything that you could. Many people would like to think they would act the same way in a situation like that. Was it just an instinct that kicked in with you? Yes. I didn't have to think twice about it. It was just, you know, I was there, I was an able body and so I was just trying to do what I could to help people. I know that you emcee for quest love and he sent out a nice tweet about you overnight. He said, thank god that you are here to literally see another year. Today is your birthday. Yes, yes. Today is my birthday, yes. And I know that you're feeling very, very grateful this morning, aren't you? Yes, I'm so grateful, yes. Yameen, thank you. I know you and others and ourselves included are thinking of those who were not as fortunate but thank you so much. Yes. Thank you. You take care. Thank you, thanks for having me. God bless everyone. God bless. Peace. Peace. About 200 people were treated at nearby hospitals and let's go to ABC's David Wright at temple university hospital. Dozens of victims taken there. Some of them in critical condition this morning, David. Reporter: Good morning, robin. This is one of the few level one trauma centers in Philadelphia so it was here that some of the most critical cases came. 54 patients trnted to this one hospital alone. Many of them just minor cuts and scrapes but eight critical cases and one person died here overnight. This one of five local hospitals to see wounded. This accident is what's known as a level 3 mass casualty incident which means basically that there were too many casualties for any one hospital to handle. In this case, 150 plus, robin. That's more than half the train. It is. All right, David, thank you.
