TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – A group of 17 Taiwanese tourists escaped from a burning tour
bus on a highway in South Korea without harm, reports said Saturday.
The group had just arrived in the country from Kaohsiung on Friday for a five-day tour of the country.
As the tour bus was traveling on a highway through the Yangpyeong area of Gyeonggi Province east of Seoul Saturday afternoon, a group member from Tainan said most passengers became aware of the smell of something burning, but at first they assumed it was farmers burning straw along the side of the road.
However, the travelers at the back of the bus saw smoke emanating from the bus and told the driver to stop by the side of the highway. [FULL STORY]
