Germany is in mourning after 29 of their countrymen were killed when a tourist bus crashed into a ravine on the Portuguese island of Madeira, in the Atlantic ocean. The shocking imagery that has since been released shows how the bus goes off a cliff and drops down meters below.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has assured her countrymen that local police will be assisted by German investigators to find out what exactly went wrong.
EU President Juncker stated: “It was with deep sadness that I learnt of the tragic bus accident in Madeira claimed the lives of 29 European citizens from Germany, and left many others injured. Our thoughts are with all the victims, their families and friends.”
