26 Killed As Bus Plunges In Ravine In Indonesia

JAKARTA: The number of people killed when a bus plunged into a ravine on Indonesia’s Sumatra island has risen to 26, police and rescuers have said, with 13 others injured.

The accident occurred just before midnight on Monday on a winding road in South Sumatra province’s Pagar Alam district when the bus’s brakes apparently malfunctioned.

Search and rescue operation chief Berty Kowaas from the province’s capital, Palembang, said the bodies were taken to a hospital for identification, including that of a young boy who was pulled from a river near the crash site.

One of the injured was in critical condition, local police chief Dolly Gumara said.
