There Goes the Bus

When they said, “The bus is lost,” that didn’t mean the driver took a wrong turn. Heavy rains left Brazil with massive drainage problems and flooding in 2015. On a stretch of the Trans-Amazon highway between Rurópolis and Itaituba, rushing water undercut the road’s foundation. A bus was recorded as it was swallowed by the collapsing road, and is then washed away in the floodwaters. Fortunately, all the passengers got off the bus in time, and no one was injured. (Thanks, Ken Berken!)
