There are now eight dead in the Amtrak disaster.

“All individuals who we believe were on that train have now been accounted for,” Mayor Michael A. Nutter of Philadelphia said Thursday afternoon. The person found dead Thursday morning was the last of those to be located.

Amtrak has said that there were 238 passengers and 5 crew members aboard the train, and late Wednesday, officials had said fewer than a dozen remained unaccounted for.

    “Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to Amtrak. Just a few things to keep in mind. Your engineer “Rollo” is gay (not that it makes any difference), and he broke up recently with his partner. He may or may not have been on anti-depressants, but he’s rarin’ to go now, so you should make good time to your respective destinations. So sit back, relax, and enjoy one of our nation’s safest ways to travel- your Amtrak rail-lines.”
