video capture

What: Israel Railways Passenger train en route from Nahariya to Tel Aviv
Where: near Kibbutz Shfaim and Netanya
When: December 28 2010, 9:20 am
Who: 121 passengers injured
Why: While en route, the third carriage from the end emitted an explosion; then a fire apparently due to an electrical short (but possibly terrorist related) started in a rear engine. The third carriage from the end melted, and the burning diesel leaked on to the track, and thick smoke filled the train. Over 100 passengers sustained injuries, 5 of which were termed “moderate.” Most passengers exited the train themselves, although there were 4 firefighting crews.
