(Bronx, NY)  -- New  York Governor Andrew Cuomo says four people are dead in this morning's train derailment in the Bronx. Cuomo, who toured the derailment site in the Spuyten Duyvil section, says the families of those lost have not been notified.

He asked everyone to keep the victims in their thoughts and prayers. At least 63 people were injured in the derailment and Cuomo says they believe everyone has been accounted for.

Those wanting to locate passengers are asked to call 3-1-1. The train operator survived and is being treated. The 5:54 am train out of Poughkeepsie jumped the tracks around 7:20 this morning, derailing seven cars. The accident is under investigation.
