JAKARTA: A bus carrying dozens of pilgrims plunged down a steep ravine on Indonesia’s Java island, killing at least 27 people including junior high school students, authorities said Thursday.
Rescuers worked through the night using cranes to pluck injured survivors from the wreckage after the fatal crash late Wednesday in West Java’s Sumedang district.
The bus carrying 66 passengers was traveling on a winding, poorly lit road when it plunged down the 20-meter (65 foot) ravine, authorities said.
