A security camera captured the high-speed derailment of a train at Chicago O’Hare International Airport Monday, and surfaced on YouTube Wednesday.


The CCTV camera captured a dramatic angle of the Blue Line train approaching in the background before suddenly flying off the rails and crashing into the top of an escalator as two people jump out of the way.

More than 30 people were injured when the train — which officials say was moving faster than allowed in approach to the station — derailed early Monday morning.
