The rescue workers are totally traumatized. They say that when they got to the scene, they called out to find the people... and no one replied.
I can also imagine the carnage. Most tour buses have no seat belts, most people must have been thrown around. They were also elderly, and at that time, after a long day, probably asleep.
Yes, most locals offer condolences but many also ask what the heck is going on, so many fatal tour bus accidents, something has to be done.
I mean, the bus comapny has said that the bus was an expensive one, no cheapo used, paid extra for extra safety, can't understand what happened. They say.
Cost of the tour was 1100 ntd. That is what they were harging last year for a 2 day to Taitung. One wonders if the margins are so low, what is being cut, what is pushed aside? If the driver was rushed to be in Taipei at a certain time, if he was pushing too tired, SOP. Then accidents are a logical conclusion.
