华盛顿地铁烟雾事故 已致1死2伤
One dead, two critically hurt after smoke fills Washington subway car

【新闻速递】美国华盛顿,一地铁站高峰时期突然起火,浓烟密布,消防人员疏散乘客,起火原因正在调查中。警方透露,有一名女子在这起事件中身亡,2名乘客及1名消防员伤势严重。另有多达84人因身体不适被送入医院接受救治。1月14日电,据外媒报道,美国国家运输安全委员会发言人13日表示,初步调查显示,华盛顿地铁致命烟雾事故由电路问题引发。

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A woman has died and at least two people were critically injured after smoke filled a subway car in downtown Washington on Monday afternoon, officials said.

A total of 84 patients were transported to area hospitals, and scores more were evaluated at the scene, said Khalid Naji-Allah, a program analyst with the District of Columbia Fire Department.


 

Richard Sarles, the general manager of the region's Metro system, told reporters one woman died and two people were critically injured in the incident at L'Enfant Plaza station that caused major disruptions on many of the system's subway lines.

"We don't know yet the cause of the heavy smoke," Sarles said.

Morgan Dye, a spokeswoman for the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, said the National Transportation Safety Board is looking into the cause of the smoke. A representative from the NTSB declined immediate comment.

The system, which operates in Washington and nearby Virginia and Maryland suburbs, is the second-busiest nationally in terms of passengers carried after New York City's subway network.(via english.sina.com)
