13 passengers almost got boiled
Freak accident in Siberia
No one would to drive a bus full of passengers into a fountain of water shooting out from a manhole, right? Wrong. One driver did just that two days ago in Krasnoyarsk, Siberia. And please note that the water shooting 20 metres up and pouring into the bus was boiling.
According to siberantimes.com, 13 of the altogether 15 passengers suffered heavy skin burns, some of whom are currently in life-threatening condition - what a price to pay for travelling in a bus driven by an ignorant driver. He saw the steaming fountain and the people on the street shouting and waving their arms like mad to make him stop, but thought he knew better. Café owner Inessa Puzikova, who gave first aid, said: 'Many people were badly burned, especially their legs. I ran out with the special foam against burns to help them. One kid... his legs were scalded to meat up to his knees.'
The driver, who jumped through the smashed windscreen to flee but did not open the doors for more than fifteen passengers including five teenagers, could face up to two years jail for traffic regulation violations.
