New Jersey... one person is dead and three others injured after a commuter train accident in New Brunswick. Police say the victim was hit and killed by a northbound New Jersey Transit train. The others were hurt when they were hit by debris. All other passengers were asked to leave the train station as authorities began their investigation...

Texas... a huge fire rips through an apartment building under construction in Houston. The fire department went into defense mode as the four-alarm fire burned throughout the whole building. Heavy smoke could be seen for miles throughout Houston. No word yet on any injuries...

California... an infant gorilla is now back with her mother after being successfully treated for pneumonia after a C-section delivery. The 12-day-old female saw her mother for the first time yesterday. The mother has cradled, carried and nursed her baby ever since. The zoo will continue to monitor the baby and her mom to make sure everyone is okay. And now that everyone is back together, we have to leave this USA Update.
