Video Released of Deadly 2012 Train Crash in Argentina (VIDEO)

BUENOS AIRES – Argentine media outlets released a video from the 2012 train crash that killed 51 and injured more than 700.

The video, broadcast Sunday night by America television, shows the moments after the crash and the difficult rescue efforts undertaken in one of the train cars that crashed into – and became embedded in – a station platform on the morning of Feb. 22, 2012, upon its arrival at the busy Once station in Buenos Aires.

The cries for help, the need to keep the victims hydrated and the efforts by firefighters to save people trapped in the wreckage clearly show that this was one of the worst railway accidents in Argentine history.

Currently, the courts are moving forward with the so-called “Once tragedy” case, in which the train’s engineer, Marcos Cordoba, former transport secretaries Ricardo Jaime and Juan Pablo Schiavi and another 26 people are all implicated.

Also facing trial are brothers Claudio and Mario Cirigliano, the directors of rail operator TBA, who stand accused of alleged “illicit association” and “aggravated derailment of a train.”

During the investigative phase, the court concluded that the rail line was suffering from “serious deficiencies” caused by TBA and that the transportation officials did not do anything about it.

Six days after the disaster, the Argentine government took over TBA and later it withdrew the license from the Sarmiento metropolitan rail line, on which the accident occurred.

Here's the video in Spanish
