Freight train derails, stranding migrants

The train is called the "Train of Death", because it has derailed a number of times.

A freight train used by Mexicans and Central Americans to get to the US border derailed in Southern Mexico, stranding over 1,000 migrants.

MEXICO (NBC) - A freight train used by Mexicans and Central Americans to get to the US border derailed in Southern Mexico, stranding over 1,000 migrants.

Most of the migrants on board ride on top of the freight cars. Most of them are young, and no one was hurt when the train that's called "The Beast" ran off the tracks Wednesday.

The train's called the "Train of Death" because it has derailed a number of times.

When it came off the tracks in August of last year, six people were killed and 36 others were injured.

The US is trying stem the flow of unaccompanied minors from Central America who believe they'll be able to enter the US legally because they're minors without a parent.
