28 killed and 28 injured in school bus field trip in Switzerland

A catastrophic crash involving a charter bus transporting Dutch and Belgian school children and their chaperones left 22 students and six adults dead with 14 more students in hospitals and another 14 students injured. This tragic mass casualty event was described with terms like “carnage” and “devastation” by emergency responders who worked for more than two hours to free the last survivor from the wreckage.

This horrific case demonstrates how school safety concerns go beyond the schoolyard and in this case can even extend to another country.
