Bloomberg In Bermuda When NY Train Derailed

December 2, 2013

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was in Bermuda on Sunday [Dec 1] when a train derailed in the Bronx killing four people, the American media is reporting.

The Wall Street Journal reports that, “Mr. Bloomberg, who steps down on Dec. 31 after 12 years at City Hall, was playing golf Sunday at Bermuda’s majestic Mid Ocean golf club, a person who spotted the mayor said.

“The Metro-North Railroad train derailment — killing four people and injuring more than 60 others — occurred at roughly 7:20 a.m. New York time.”

The NY Daily News said, “The Mayor was hitting the links during Sunday’s deadly derailment and, reportedly, did not leave the course until more than four hours after the wreck occurred.”

Major Bloomberg has been in the spotlight before for being in Bermuda when a serious situation occurred, with reports saying the Mayor was on the island when a massive blizzard hit New York City a couple of years ago.
