Death toll at 35 in Canadian train derailment

QUEBEC, Canada — Searchers have recovered two more bodies in the Canadian train derailment. This brings the death toll to 35 people.

Investigators say 15 people are still missing after the 73-car train derailed in early July.

Officers say the train's engineer parked the train for the night, and checked into a hotel. 

Then somehow the train got loose. It slammed into the center of a neighboring town.

Tank cars filled with fuel exploded.

Along with the deaths, the runaway cars destroyed about 40 buildings.
