That's insane that it took 70 minutes for help to arrive. If the children were pulled out alive and later brought to hospital, surely they would have been saved?

l^ast year, a nine-seat private school van overloaded with 62 nursery children and two adults crashed head-on with a truck in rural western China, killing 19 children and the adults.^

Can't believe this either. Don't even remember hearing about it but how do you even get 62 children and 2 adults in to a 9 seater van! shock angry

I know I have yet to hear of this on the main news sad There'll be so many more similar stories. Another one from China featuring children that wasn't massive news.

It said it was in rural China, they would have been so far from emergency help sad.

Chinese news just doesn't het reported.
There hae been numerous standings of children in the last few years but the news has to filter through and old news isn't interesting
I wonder if the government has something to do with it
Those poor children and their families sad
