Cyclone Remal: Tree Falls On School Bus Carrying 20 Students In Assam | X

Sonitpur: A large eucalyptus tree fell on a school bus carrying roughly twenty students early this morning, resulting in a serious accident near the entrance of St. Ursala Higher Secondary School in Dhekiajuli.


The bus was completely damaged in the event, which happened at around 7:30 AM. Just as the bus was pulling into the school, the tree—weakened by the previous intense winds and rain—fell, trapping the students inside, as reported by The Assam Tribune.

According to The Assam Tribune, in order to save the students who were trapped, emergency personnel came on the site swiftly. For emergency care, the injured were sent right away to Manbar Nath Community Hospital. Later, several students were directed to Tezpur Medical College and Hospital in order to receive additional medical attention.
