Any spare good thoughts would be appreciated here

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Can I ask people to spare good thoughts and prayers right now, there has been a train derailment at Waterfall, a town just south of Sydney.

So far 8 people are confirmed dead, 16 seriously injured and probably another 20 are still trapped in the train (the accident happened 5 hours ago). The train was going out of the city, so fortunately wasn't full, but they are estimating about 80 people were on board.

The area is almost inaccessible for rescue vehicles, paramedics are having to walk 1.5km with equipment, helicopters are unable to land (the rail track is on a cutting, so there is a fairly steep cliff)so are winching the seriously injured out, to get them to a hospital.

It's pretty awful, prayers and good thoughts would be appreciated.

Positive energy to those who need it - those still trapped and those who are working to save them, and of course for the families of those already confirmed dead.

All of those in the train, as well as their family members are in my prayers. It is beginning to look like we need a prayer list with all the awful things happening in the world.

I heard a little about this on the radio this morning but they didn't give much info about it. That's just terrible!

HEAPS of positive thoughts and good wishes being sent your way!!

I hope they can get everyone rescued without any further fatalities or serious injuries.

you're kind thoughts and prayers are very much appreciated here.

The news now says 9 people are dead, 39 are injured.

The rescue and emergency services people are doing an amazing job. It makes me shudder, to think of these people who were just ordinary people going to work or uni or visiting family, have their life taken so quickly. And those who have survived, who have to live with this for the rest of their lives.

My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected.
