Five kids missing as bus plunges in China river

Jun 13 2013, 3:36am CDT | by

Beijing, June 13 (IANS) Rescuers were searching for five children who were reported missing after a minibus plunged into a river in China's Fujian province a day ago, authorities said Thursday.

Beijing, June 13 — Rescuers were searching for five children who were reported missing after a minibus plunged into a river in China's Fujian province a day ago, authorities said Thursday.

The seven-seat minibus carrying 10 people went into a 10-metre-deep river Wednesday afternoon near Zhangzhou city, reported Xinhua citing a government official.

Though five people managed to make it to safety, five children are still missing, the official said, adding that the torrential rain hit the mountainous township from Tuesday to Wednesday, causing the road to turn muddy and slippery, which might have partly caused the accident.
