Thirty school children were killed in northern India on Monday (April 9) when a bus carrying them fell into a gorge.

The bus was returning from school in the Himalayan state of Himachal Pradesh when it fell off into a 200-feet deep ravine.

The driver and a teacher were among the victims.

The chief minister of the state said 27 children had died, but the number was later revised to 30.

Seven pupils were battling for their lives, according to a statement by the deputy commissioner of Kangra.

A preliminary report by the Indian National Safety Council estimates that as many as 40,000 people died in motor vehicles accidents in the country in 2016.
