Two passenger train carriages lie next to each other following a derailment after they were hit by flash floods on a bridge outside the town of Harda in Madhya Pradesh state, central India on August 5, 2015Two passenger trains derailed after being hit by flash floods on a bridge in central India, killing at least 27 people in the latest deadly accident on the nation's crumbling rail network. Rescuers have been searching through the night for passengers trapped on the trains that toppled when a swollen river struck the tracks in Madhya Pradesh state, railway officials said. Roughly 300 people were rescued after about 10 of the trains' carriages derailed outside the town of Harda at about 11.30 pm (1800 GMT) on Tuesday, police and other officials said.
