    GENEVA (AP) — A bus carrying Belgian students returning from a ski holiday crashed into a wall in a Swiss tunnel, killing 28 people, police said Wednesday.
    At least 22 of those killed were children, and another 24 students were hospitalized with injuries, Valais cantonal (state) police spokesman Jean-Marie Bornet told The Associated Press.

    The bus carrying 52 people crashed around 9 p.m. local time in a tunnel at Sierre, Switzerland, near popular ski areas in the Swiss Alps.

    A rescue helicopter and ambulances were called in to carry the injured.

    Belgian media reported that the children were from two towns, Lommel, east of Antwerp, and Heverlee, near Leuven. A government spokesman said a crisis center has been set up and an emergency number provided for families.

    Didier Reynders, the Belgian foreign minister, said authorities were still busy identifying all the victims.
    "It is incomprehensible. There were three buses and only one was in (an) accident without any contact with another vehicle," he said. "It hit a wall in a tunnel."
    How terribly sad, coming back from what I'm sure was an amazing vacation. My thoughts to the victims and their families.

    the circumstances surrounding how the bus crashed are a little odd if you ask me. would be nice to know what happened, if perhaps they hit a patch of black ice and swerved into a wall or something. i noticed when i was in switzerland it was a little trippy driving through all the tunnels through mountains because the lights would disorientate me a bit but not to the point where i would have ever swerved into a wall

    I heard it on the radio this morning. Scary thought that I have to go on a school trip to Rome with a bus through Switzerland in 2 weeks.

    I can't even imagine how the parents must feel when they heard about the news, not knowing if their child is still alive or not.

    Stuff like this isn't really appropriate to make jokes about. 22 children died in that crash...

    Aw man, I went to Austria with a bus for a school ski trip just a year ago, and an old school friend lost her entire family in a tunnel car crash many years ago too. :(

    Best of luck coping with the situation to the families.

    That bus looks absolutely ravaged. How did it hit a wall anyway? Tunnels don't usually have sharp turns, and he didn't nudge any other vehicles...

    OrangeElimin will you just shut up? Nobody cares about your obsessive hatred against people who watch some cartoon. This is a thread about a bus crash that killed 28 people.

    This looks horrible. There's blood all over the bus. And to think I live 15 km away from Belgium... I feel really sorry for the victims and the family of the deceased. If I could visit them and show my respect, I would've done it.

    Whenever i'm on a bus and i'm bored i like to think what would happen if, say, the bush crashed, or a car hit there, we were crushed by a crane. Orange, March 2012, calling around 35% of Fp's faggots. You'll do well here.

    I was wondering how the bus could be that damaged by just hitting the side of the tunnel...
    Well this explains it:

    Extremely depressing. A blog written by a teacher about the Ski trip with loads of pictures of happy students and such. Now more than half of them is death...

    -nevermind the blog seems to have been deleted while I was writing this.

    It looks like someone made a new blog under the same name. 2 hours ago there were lots of pictures on the frontpage of the blog ( photographed yesterday ): ) with quotes from the children that the food of the last night tasted good etc.
    Now there's some sort of standard page with information on what to do with your blog; how to make an new post etc.
