Hundreds Join Vigil at Depot
Survivors of the Metrolink crash and family members of those who died gathered at the Chatsworth train station last Friday night.Click HERE for video.
Haley Giz, 15, and Kristen Kiertzner, 17, felt
they had to do something for the victims, the first-responders and the
community, so they organzed the vigil.
Larger candles are lit in memory of those killed and smaller tea lights honor the injured, first responders and volunteers. [For a photo slideshow, click HERE.] [For memorial video, click HERE.]
TIMES BUILDS DATABASE
Remembering the Metrolink Victims
At 4:23 p.m., Friday, Sept. 12, a Metrolink commuter train collided
with an oncoming freight train in Chatsworth, Calif., northwest of Los
Angeles. The crash, the Los Angeles Times reported, was "the worst in modern California history," killing 25 and injuring 135.
The following afternoon, LATimes.com, the paper's Web site, posted an interactive database of the first fatalities who were identified.
The database enabled readers to learn more about each victim with
fields sorted by name, age, gender, hometown, hospital, marital status,
number of children, occupation, reason for riding, and the train car
they were riding. [Click HERE for the database.] [For those interested in the technology, click HERE.]
