Tragedy In South Africa As 20 School Children & Driver Burn To Death In A Minibus Crash

No fewer than 20 pupils have died after a minibus they were travelling in crashed into a lorry just outside Bronkhortspruit in Gauteng, South Africa on Friday. The bus burst into flames, and most of the children were trapped inside. ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said fire services managed to extinguish the burning vehicle, which was found lying on its side.

Russel Meiring, ER24 spokesman said. "It is confirmed 20 children have been killed."

"Paramedics arrived on the scene to find the fire services already in attendance. The fire services had already extinguished the burning vehicle, which was found lying on its side." "Unfortunately, nothing could be done for the children and they were declared dead on the scene," Meiring said.

The truck driver survived, so did several other children who sustained injuries and had to be dragged from the wreckage by people at the scene. The dead children and the dead minibus driver lay trapped inside the bus that stood on its side. Some of the bodies of the children were charred beyond recognition.
