Eight children who were victims of road traffic accidents were in a minibus that was returning to a shelter for abandoned or abused girls, the youngest of those traveling in it was four years old. One of the witnesses of the accident managed to get the driver out of the bus, he also tried to save the children, but the bus was already engulfed in flames.
Two more victims – a man and his 9-month-old daughter – were driving in the car.
