Another bus falls off ravine – Quezon City 5 dead and 49 injured

Every month there seems to be a major bus accident and here today is another a passenger bus plunged into a creek in a mountain region southeast of Manila killing 5 and injuring 49.

Police and fire fighters struggled during darkness to pull the injured and dead from the overturned wreckage at the bottom of the creek in Quezon province Pagbilao township.

The bus appears to have lost its brakes before plummeting into the creek whilst most of its passengers slept half way through their journey between Central Tacloban to Quezon city according to Quezon provincial police chief Senior Superintendent Erickson Velasquez.
