IT was a morning of terror yesterday when about 35 school students were left fighting for their lives after the bus they were travelling to school in veered off Kubukawa Rd and rolled down a slope in Wakanisila settlement in Nasinu.
Broken limbs, torn skin and iron rods piercing body parts were some of the frightening images which scarred nearby residents who came out to help the students.
Some students who were in the Raiwaqa Buses Limited bus were thrown out of windows and were found hanging onto branches, holding on for dear life, crying and covered in blood. Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said the students were rushed to the Colonial War Memorial Hospital and the Makoi Health Centre. He said most of the students were injured.
"We are yet to take statements from the children," he said, adding LTA inspectors had begun investigations.
Some students were treated and discharged while some are still admitted and receiving treatment.
