Two commuter trains have collided just north of downtown Rio de Janeiro, leaving nine people injured.
Firefighters worked for over six hours to rescue the train's driver, who was caught under the wreckage on Wednesday morning.
About a dozen firefighters crowded around the point where the two trains were mashed together, working over a narrow opening to free the driver, at one point bringing in a welder.
The Rio fire department confirmed the driver was still alive. According to Globo television, the driver was attached to an oxygen balloon to help him breath and his family was present at the station.
One train smashed into the back of another at 6:50 am local time at the Sao Cristovao station, local train authorities said.
The Rio fire department said that the eight other injured people were brought to hospitals.
The cause of the accident was under investigation.
