Authorities are reporting that a train travelling through a mountainous part of Eastern Switzerland near the ski resort of St Moritz has been derailed by a landslide.
Several carriages have plunged into a ravine. The number of casualties is not yet known, but the injured have been taken to hospital by both helicopter and ambulance.
A spokesman for Rhaetische Bahn, Simon Rageth issued a short statement: “Part of the train was derailed by a landslide,” however, he would not comment further at this time. The landslide appears to have been caused by heavy overnight rain.
