on

It was reported that 37 passengers lost their lives in an accident on the popular tourist resort of Genting Highlands. The bus that they boarded was going down to Kuala Lumpur and fell into a ravine. Not sure how deep because one report (on the internet) says 30 metre while anther 60 metres.

The Star report: PETALING JAYA: Thirty-seven people were killed in the country’s worst road tragedy, after a bus carrying 53 plunged into a 60m ravine near Genting Highlands around 2.45pm Wednesday.

The dead included 24 males and 13 females. Sixteen people were injured in the incident.

The 2.45pm accident happened when the ill-fated bus was descending a steep slope.
