Rescue Workers Help Wounded After Moscow Subway Derailment

Emergency workers rushed to help victims of a subway train derailment that killed at least 20 people and injured more than 100 in Moscow on July 15. Some of the injured were evacuated by helicopter. A spokesman for the Emergencies Ministry said a power surge triggered an alarm, causing the train to stop abruptly and several cars to derail between the Slaviansky Boulevard and Park Pobedy stations.
