    Default German tourist coach crash on Portuguese island of Madeira - 29 killed, 27 injured.

    Madeira crash: At least 29 killed on tourist bus near Canio

    17th April 2019


    The bus plunged off a road and overturned near houses

    At least 29 people have died after a bus carrying German tourists plunged off a road and overturned on the Portuguese island of Madeira.

    Another 27 were injured in the accident near the town of Canio.

    The accident happened at 18:30 (17:30 GMT) when the driver lost control of the bus at a junction and went off the road, according Portuguese news agency Lusa.

    The overturned vehicle came to rest near houses.

    "I have no words to describe what happened. I cannot face the suffering of these people," local Mayor Filipe Sousa told broadcaster SIC TV.

    He said all the tourists on the bus were German but some local people could also be among the casualties. Eleven of the fatalities were men and 17 women, Mr Sousa added. The bus was reported to be carrying 55 passengers, as well as the driver and a tour guide.

    Another woman later died of her injuries in hospital.


    The bus appeared to have rolled down a hillside


    Ambulances ferried the injured to hospital

    The scene of the crash has been sealed off and the injured transferred to a hospital in the island's capital, Funchal, Lusa said. An investigation into the crash has been launched.

    Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa is flying to the island to visit the scene, the agency said.

    Prime Minister Antonio Costa has sent a message of condolence to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Reuters reported.

    Madeira was the scene of another fatal bus crash in 2005 when five Italian tourists died in So Vicente, on the northern coast.

    Beauty is only skin deep... and the flesh doesn't last forever on a dying planet.
    Some people are obsessed with physical appearance... and cruelly judge and hate people based on their skin.
    Some people are shallow and idolise flesh rather than a person's soul/personality.
    If people fall in love and are happy in each other's company,
    then why should others object - simply due to a person's external appearance.
