LAC-MEGANTIC, Que. – Quebec police say 28 people are now confirmed dead in the Lac-Megantic train disaster and that another 22 are presumed dead.
However, police say the number of dead is likely much higher. They say there are 50 people missing and they are all presumed dead.
Police have released the first name of a victim: 93-year-old Elianne Parenteau.
They are warning people to stay away from the closed-off downtown core — which is considered a crime scene.
They say they arrested someone, a 53-year-old-man from outside the region, for stepping into what they’re calling the “red zone.”
