A train hits a school bus carrying approximately 70 children, killing at least 50 as well as the driver and wounding 17
The incident occurred due to a crossing worker allegedly being asleep when the bus approached the crossing, leading to the crossing barricades not being lowered. Additionally, police did not arrive on the scene for 2 hours and by the time ambulances arrived, most children had already died. The incident caused protests from the grieving families and the head of the railway authority resigned shortly after.
