Spain train crash survivor speaks out
SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA -- A survivor of a train crash in northwestern Spain is speaking about the ordeal. The crash on the outskirts of Santiago de Compostela killed at least 80 people. An investigation is underway into what caused the train to derail.... early speculation is that speed was a factor. Stephen Ward, 18, of Bountiful, Utah was on board.
"Everyone was covered in blood. I've got staples all over my scalp. I was covered in blood; they scrubbed most of it off me now. Everyone was covered in their own blood and occasionally the blood of others. It was gruesome,” Ward said.
An American woman named Ana-Maria Cordoba from Arlington, Virginia, is among the dead. At least five other US citizens were injured. About 90 people remained in the hospital Friday morning.
