Family Says New York City Woman Victim In Amtrak Train Derailment

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- A spokesman for the family of a New York City woman says she was one of the eight people killed in Tuesday's deadly Amtrak wreck in Philadelphia.

The family says 47-year-old Laura Finamore had been coming back to New York from a memorial service for a college friend's mother.

The spokesman says the family got word on Wednesday that the seventh victim fit her description, but dental records were needed to confirm it.

Finamore worked in commercial real estate as a senior account director at Cushman & Wakefield. She is survived by her parents, three brothers, and seven nieces and nephews.
