People Pitch-in to Lift Bus off Accident Victim

Fifteen passers-by helped lift a bus to free a man who was stuck under it after the bus smashed into the back of the victim’s SUV in Sanxia, yesterday evening.

At around 8:00pm, a couple had just parked their car and were taking their 4 year-old twins out of the back seat, when a bus driver ‘suffering a lapse in concentration’ drove his bus into the back of the vehicle.

Thirty-four year-old Ms Wu was thrown onto the sidewalk, while her husband, 41 year-old Mr Tsai, ended up stuck under the bus. The children’s safety seat fell out of the car.

Passers-by rushed in to help the couple. Fifteen of them helped to lift the bus so Mr Tsai could be extracted.

The four family members were taken to hospital by ambulance.
