Witnesses said one train rammed into another lifting its carriages high into the air, then twisting and finally falling off the tracks.

"Everything was shaking and we could feel the coach toppling," Sanjay Mukhia, a daily wage worker travelling to Chennai on the Coromandel Express, told a news channel. Mukhia was injured in the accident.

Another survivor said severed limbs of humans were seen amid the trains' wreckage.
