A train derailed and knocked a northwest Atlanta home off its foundation early Thursday as a man slept in his bedroom. The man, who was trapped inside the home in the 1300 block of Andrews Street, was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital with minor injuries to his legs after authorities rescued him, officials said. “You’re sleeping in your bed, and you hear a large rumble and then you hear a large crash,” Atlanta fire spokesman Cortez Stafford. “So he’s very fortunate that he’s alive right now.” According to Stafford, the northbound CSX train went about 5 to 10 feet inside the house after 14 railcars left the tracks about 3 a.m.
