The train derailed on a curved section of track in the Bronx early Sunday, coming to rest just inches from the water, killing at least four people and injuring more than 60, authorities said. Police divers searched the waters to make sure no passenger had been thrown in, as other emergency crews scoured the surrounding woods.
