KATHMANDU: At least 21 people have died and 15 others sustained injuries after a bus plunged into a reservoir in China.

The vehicle was travelling on a bridge on Tuesday in Anshun, Guizhou province when it crashed through a roadside barrier and fell into the water.

Those on board reportedly included students who were scheduled to take the “gaokao” university entrance exams, Xinhua reported.

The driver, who is among the dead, had worked on this bus route since 1997.

It’s unclear how many people were on the bus at the time and how many of those were students.

The bus was removed from the water on Tuesday afternoon, Guizhou Fire Department said on its Weibo page late on Tuesday.
