Flu-like Medical Emergency on Canadian Train

Recombinomics Commentary 17:01
May 9, 2008

One passenger is dead and 10 others are being transported to Timmins and District Hospital after reporting flu-like symptoms on board a Toronto-bound Via train.

One of the 10 passengers is being airlifted to TDH, while the nine others are being transported by land ambulance.

The train departed from Vancouver and was stopped in Foleyte, about 100 km west of Timmins.

The affected passengers were on two of the train cars, but the entire train was placed under quarantine.

Reports indicate there were 250 people on the train.

The above comments describe a medical emergency in Canada.

Media reports have suggested that the town where the train stopped may be evacuated.  Initial reports suggest four passengers may be in serious condition and are members of a tour group from Jaspers, Alberta, raising concerns of an infectious disease.
