Bus Falls Off Cliff, Killing 18 People

At least 18 people lost their lives in a tragic accident in Nayarit, Mexico, on Saturday evening when a bus they were traveling in fell off a cliff between Tepic and Puerto Vallarta.

Aerial photographs from the Nayarit Security and Civil Protection Ministry show the catastrophic aftermath, with the mangled remains of the bus lying at the base of the 50ft drop.

As per reports, 11 women and seven men died in the accident, and 11 children were rescued and admitted to local hospitals.

Authorities are still conducting investigations and determining the cause of the tragedy.

This is the latest of many tragic accidents in Mexico in recent times. Another bus accident in Puebla earlier in Feb left 17 dead.
