Victim's kin: NY derailment unfair to loved ones

MONTROSE, N.Y. (AP) - The brother of a man killed in a New York derailment says the train accident was "just not fair."

Charlie Ferrari said at his brother James' funeral Thursday that James had found what made him happy -- the love of his wife, Francie.

James Ferrari, a building superintendent, was killed Sunday on his way to work in Manhattan when a Metro-North commuter train derailed in the Bronx. Three others also died. An investigation is focusing on the train's high speed as it entered a curve.

A heavy fog blanketed mourners as they embraced outside the church in Montrose and walked behind the hearse to a nearby graveyard for burial.

A friend said Ferrari worked six days a week so he could live the dream of a house in the suburbs.
