About ten people, including a child, were rushed to the hospital after a tourist bus carrying a group of South Korean holidaymakers plunged off a cliff in the south-central province of Binh Thuan on Saturday afternoon.

The accident took place on Nguyen Thong Street in the provincial capital of Phan Thiet, as the tourists, all South Korean nationals, were heading for the city’s downtown after leaving the resort town of Mui Ne, according to local residents.

The bus was seen on its side down the cliff, severely deformed, when a Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper reporter arrived at the scene.

Around ten South Korean tourists, including one child, and the bus driver were hospitalized for emergency treatment.

Tran Van Toan, director of the Binh Thuan police department, was present at the scene of the accident to direct officers to handle the case.

Below are some photos taken at the scene:
