Seventh body found in river after bus accident in Spain



After a collision between a bus bridge and a bus, seven bodies were found in northern Spain. The vehicle then fell into the river.

Jose Minones, the Spanish representative in Galicia, told reporters that the remains had been found downstream by a rescue helicopter.

After the child of the victim filed a missing persons report two days after the accident, search and rescue efforts resumed on Monday 26 December.

After six bodies had been recovered, authorities completed the operation and two survivors were rescued. Based on the information received from the relatives of the victims, authorities believe that eight people were aboard the bus when it crashed.

Due to discrepancies in the testimony of the driver (63 year old) and the minor injuries sustained from the fall, the weekend’s total was not known. Firefighters pulled him from the river with his female passenger, who is still being treated in hospital.

On Twitter, Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez expressed his shock at the “tragic accident”, offered condolences to the families, and wished the best for the injured.
