Edwin Valero was in an apartment building above the accident scene when the train derailed. He says none of the cars went into the water where the Harlem River meets the Hudson, but at least one ended up a few feet from the edge.

He says he didn’t realize the train had turned on its side until he saw a firefighter walking on the window.
