FRANCE-RAIL-ACCIDENT

An injured person, laying on a stretcher, arrives at the hospital of Nice, southern France, after a train derailed near Digne-les-Bains in the French Alps on February 8, 2014. Two women were killed when a massive falling boulder hit a passing train in the French Alps on Saturday, leaving one of its carriages dangling precariously off a steep, snow-covered embankment. Eight people were injured in the accident which took place as the train travelled from the coastal city of Nice to the popular tourist town of Digne-les-Bains along a narrow, winding, and sometimes breathtakingly steep track.
