IT wasn't over until the fat lady melted. And melt she did, going up in flames as a barrage of fireworks illuminated the midnight sky and the crowd cheered.

VALENCIA, Spain - A 2009 snapshot shows the president of Spain's Valencia region cruising along in a $200,000 Ferrari. It was Francisco Camps' victory lap, after presiding over the Formula One European Grand Prix and the America's Cup yacht race. Valencia was dubbed the "California of Spain" for its gorgeous coastline, modern architecture and mind-set. Construction of upscale homes and resorts was booming. Four years later, that Ferrari photo has become an embarrassing reminder of Valencia's heady growth years - and how much has gone awry since then.

A subway train flipped off the tracks at high speed Monday in the Mediterranean port of Valencia, killing at least 41 people and injuring 47, officials and witnesses said. Regional authorities and a witness said the train was going too fast when a wheel shattered on a curve approaching the Jesus station, derailing the first car. Rescue workers hustled bloodied, sooty survivors out of the tunnel, where bodies were strewn. Anguished relatives waited outside the local morgue.
