    Belgian coach crash in Swiss tunnel kills 28

    BBC News - Belgian coach crash in Swiss tunnel kills 28


    At least 28 people - including 22 children - have been killed in a coach crash in a tunnel in Switzerland.
    Another 24 children were injured in the crash near Sierre, in the canton of Valais, close to the border with Italy.

    Those on board the bus that crashed were from 't Stekske primary school in Lommel, close to the Dutch border, and from Sint Lambertusschool in Heverlee, near Leuven, with Belgian media saying the numbers were roughly even.



    This is just tragic. So many precious children killed and injured. My heart goes out to all of the families and friends of the victims.


    RIP
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    I beleive the "coach" was referring to the vehicle itself as in bus. "Belgian coach crash"


    R.I.P. such a tragedy.

    You could ask a lot of people in the U.S. what a coach was and they probably wouldn't say bus. It is rarely used here to refer to a bus.
