Holding on for dear life
TOUR bus passengers who crashed down an embankment in the Gold Coast Hinterland are counting their lucky stars.
The 18 tourists, including two children, were on a glow worm tour from O’Reilly’s Retreat near Canungra on Sunday night when the mini bus rolled 20 metres down an embankment. The driver, a 28year-old man, was trapped for two hours before he was flown to Gold Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.
Six passengers, including a 10-year-old child, were also hospitalised but discharged yesterday morning.
Passengers said they clung to the roof upside down while children screamed as the bus plunged down the mountain.
