M’sian children hurt in Aussie bus accident

PERTH: Thirteen children from Indonesia and Malaysia were taken to hospital after their bus rolled over and crashed into a ditch in Western Australia, police said yesterday.

The children, aged between 10 and 12, were heading with eight adults to Lake Leschenaultia for a camping trip on Wednesday evening when the driver appeared to lose control of the bus, which “careered into a drainage ditch”.

“Three suffered injuries including suspected broken bones, and all were taken to hospital for observation,” police said in a statement.

Eight children remained in two Perth hospitals yesterday in a stable condition.

Eight adults were also hospitalised, although their injuries were not known. — AFP
