More than 40 people died after a bus fell from a bridge and caught fire in the province of Baluchistão, in the south of Pakistan, this Sunday (29), authorities said.
Forty-one bodies were recovered from two pieces of damage, some burned to the point of not being possible or recognition, said the district police Israr Umrani to Reuters.
The bus that transported about 48 people fell on the road from Quetta, capital of Baluchistão, to the city of Karachi, in the south, according to authorities.
Dozens of people were circling the destruction, they will show images shared by the organization of aid and emergency of Fundação Edhi, while ambulance officials were carrying a corpse for two pieces of rubble.
The assistant commissioner Hamza Anjum from Lasbela, a district of Baluchistão, told the newspaper Dawn that the vehicle hit a bridge, causing it to fall into a ravine and catch fire.
Fatal road accidents are common in Pakistan, where traffic routes are rarely followed and roads in many rural areas are in better condition.
At least 22 people died together, including nine members of a family, when a passenger van fell into a deep ravine in Baluchistão.
