At least 11 children have died in this morning’s school bus accident between Knysna and Sedgefield in the Southern Cape.
Paramedics say the driver was also killed in the tragedy. Scores of injured children, all believed to be under 12, have been rushed to hospital.
The accident happened on a bridge between the two Garden Route towns.
The bus ended up in the river and there are fears that more children could be trapped in the wreckage.
