From what you heard does it's not the train was already derailing when the brakes were applied. It could've been they. Event recorder is telling us a great deal of information. And as they begin to really look at the mechanical systems -- now have a much better idea if in fact. The brakes were applied by the engineer. They were automatically.

Attempt to get that kind of information out to the public. But they completely -- Read out of his interview and the investigation process with the conductors and the engineer. 72 hours mistreated -- looking at. The examination of this cell phones. That takes a little bit of time that they will ultimately be passing that information along to the public. Still despite all of this and and the other accidents that you mentioned. Israel -- still relatively safe in this country. Certainly it is and it is. That's -- -- definitely in fact that this terrible accident my mother in law was here visiting. But the Thanksgiving and I had no quality putting their opponents. And a -- a -- back to New Jersey as the train travel is really played extraordinarily safe that was an anomaly.
