41 Police Officers Die In Argentina Bus Crash

0
At least 41 police officers died today when a bus in a
convoy in Nothern Argentina went off the side of a bridge and fell 65 feet (20
meters).
The bus was one of three carrying police near Salta, a city
about 932 miles (1,500 kilometers) north of Buenos Aires.
For reasons that are still unknown, the bus lost control
while entering the bridge and fell into the creek bed below. Local television
images showed rescue crews working around the overturned bus, which authorities
said was carrying around 60 people.

Gustavo Diaz, head of a group of volunteer firefighters in
the area, told Argentine state agency Telam that 20 police were severely
injured and were being treated in area hospitals.
Roads in Argentina, a large country with a land mass about
four times the U.S. state of Texas, are poorly maintained in many rural areas.

The government has announced that Security Minister Patricia
Bullrich and National Gendarmerie director Omar Ariel Kannemann were already
traveling to the scene. May their souls rest in peace.
