In a bizarre freak accident, a woman visiting from the Dominican Republic fell to her death in Inwood this past Thursday night at 8:30 pm. The New York Post reported that the woman apparently slipped in a stairwell between the fifth and sixth floors and then flew out through a window. Family and friends were devastated by the event that took the woman's life, who was supposed to return home today, May 25th.
On Friday May 22nd, news broke that a second probe had been initiated into the tragic Amtrak Crash on May 12th. The focus of this investigation is to determine whether or not the train's engineer, Brandon Bostian was either criminally negligent or engaging in reckless behavior in the time leading up the train derailment that claimed eight lives. If the probe concludes that Bostian was, criminal charges may be brought against him, besides the civil cases he is likely to face from survivors and the families of the eight fatalities.
