HOBOKEN, N.J. (AP) — The Latest on the commuter train that crashed into a station in New Jersey (all times local):
A commuter train plowed into a station in New Jersey at the height of Thursday's morning rush hour, killing at least one person and injuring more than 100 others as it brought down part of the roof and scattered debris over the concourse. Witnesses described terrifying scenes as the front of the train smashed through the track stop in Hoboken station at high speed and into the terminal, toppling support columns and creating chaos at one of the busiest transit hubs in the New York City area. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie told a news conference in Hoboken that one person was killed on the platform by debris from the crash, and he said 108 people were injured.
"Our findings suggest that there may be a common underlying genetic basis for social behaviour in dogs and humans," senior author Pers Jensen, a professor of ethology at Linkoping University in Sweden, told AFP. The first domesticated dogs -- some 15,000 years ago -- were probably wolves that had grown accustomed to the presence of humans in their habitat, most experts agree. Indeed, one of the ways in which dogs diverged from wolves was by developing an innate tendency to seek our companionship, earlier research has shown.
