6 dead, >30 hurt in #HongKong bus crash, & a photo of #Police happily laughing at the scene was widely circulated. I know tmr cops’ll respond that a snapshot doesn’t reflect the truth, so I decided to extract this clip from @rthk_enews live. @hkpoliceforce, any further comments? pic.twitter.com/wEKNMPfssq— ajmm 😷🎗 (@ajmm19923493) December 18, 2019
Harrowing pictures show the aftermath of a horror bus crash in Hong Kong that left six dead and at least 39 injured.
Images show the mangled wreckage of the double decker bus after it hit a tree near a roundabout while travelling towards Sheung Shui in New Territories.
Three passengers were thrown out of the bus from the upper deck during the crash, according to local media Apple Daily.
At least one passenger was seen trapped inside the damaged bus and several bodies were laid out on the side of the road, it is reported.
Five people, including three men and two women, were pronounced dead at the scene and one died after being taken to hospital.
