Okay in Osaka

There was a really bad train wreck that some of you may hear about saying it took place near Osaka (actually in Amagasaki). A train derailed and hit an apartment building. At this point 53 people are confirmed to have died and over 300 injured. I, nor anyone I know, was injured in the accident. So if you hear about a wreck in/near Osaka I am okay. Reading about it in the paper was inspiring though. A heavy industry plant had its workers take tools to the scene and help rescue people, they were the first people to help. A middle school closed down and was used as a helipad for emergency evacuation and its gym to aid medical workers. Many people off the street volenteered to ues their own cars to drive the injured to hospitals.
