Daybreak Thursday morning in northwestern Spain and recovery crews begin removing the mangled pieces of a high speed train that derailed the day before.

At least 77 people are now confirmed dead after a train coming from Madrid went off the tracks just before 9pm near the town of Santiago de Compostela.

More than 130 people are being treated for injuries.

Family members rushed to hospitals to find their relatives and await news. A temporary morgue has been set up in a community center for the victims.

It's still not clear what exactly caused the derailment.

Officials are reviewing the train's black boxes but are investigating the incident as an accident.
