Reportedly every single person on the bus was either injured in some fashion or killed.

I won't post it here but the scene of the accident is horrifying. The whole front end of the bus is just...gone.

Horrible, horrible news.

Horrible tragedy. Words seem wholly inadequate in a situation like this.

Just heartbreaking news :x :cry: The response has been incredible.

The death toll is at 15 but is supposed to go up to 16. One player is on life support, he signed his organ donor card and they have found matches for the 6 organs that they can donate.

Sign your organ donor cards. Something amazing can be born out of a tragedy.

BREAKING: Coroner's office says they misidentified two victims. Tragically Parker Tobin, previously believed alive, is one of the deceased.

This means Xavier Labelle, previously thought dead by his family, is ALIVE.


Unfortunately this also means young Xavier must be in some really awful shape.
