GO Train rescue after flooding

July 9, 2013

About 1400 people had to be rescued by boat by Toronto police after a GO commuter train became stranded and filled up to the seats with water. It got stuck in the Don Valley when heavy rains and thunderstorms hit the GTA. Some passengers were stranded on the train for more than seven hours waiting to be rescued. The last of the passengers were rescued around 1 a.m. Tuesday morning.
