A rush-hour subway train derailed Tuesday in Moscow, killing 20 people and sending 150 others to the hospital, many with serious injuries, Russian officials said.Park Pobedy, where the derailment occurred, is Moscow's deepest metro station -- 84 meters deep, which was making the rescue particularly difficult.Of the 150 people reported injured, at least 50 were in grave condition, Moscow health officials said. Over 1,100 people were evacuated from the train, which was stuck between two stations, in a rescue operation that has already lasted at least seven hours.One woman taken from the scene died in a Moscow hospital.While technical glitches are regular occurrences in the Moscow Metro, the city's subway hasn't seen deadly accidents in decades.
