Demon Chief Survives Train Disaster

By CBR Staff Writer

Chris Goodall, managing director of the UKÆs Demon Internet Ltd, was among the survivors of TuesdayÆs Paddington train crash, which is estimated to have claimed the lives of over 100 people. The packed high-speed commuter train crashed into a smaller regional train that had jumped a red light, shortly before arriving at LondonÆs Paddington station at 8am Tuesday. Goodall was traveling in first class coach H, which took the full force of the fireball that was created when diesel was ignited by the effects of the 125mph impact. He said I would guess there were 50 people in the carriage. I think five people got out in total. Scores of passengers are still unaccounted for.
