A train derailed near Milan on Thursday morning killing at least two people and seriously injuring 10 others.

The train was on its way from Cremona to the Garibaldi Port station in Milan when it derailed between Segrate and Pioltello, according to local photographer Giorgio Morera.

Morera reports that five people are still stuck inside the train, with images showing emergency crews climbing inside crumpled carriages which appear to be spattered with blood.
