A bus accidentally fell into a river in the heart of Saint Petersburg, Russia’s second city, on Friday, killing three passengers, while four others were injured and were in a state of “clinical death”, according to local emergency services.

“Rescuers pulled nine people out of the submerged bus, two are in serious condition, four are in a state of clinical death and unfortunately three died,” said the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations on Telegram, which mentions an “accident of the road”.

According to this Source, the diving rescue operations have been completed and specialists were fixing straps in the middle of the afternoon to hoist the vehicle out of the water.

According to local police, the bus hit the barrier of a bridge over the Moika River, while around 20 people were on board.

Video surveillance images, broadcast by several Russian media, show the out-of-control vehicle making a turn, hitting a car, then driving into the bridge barrier and then sinking steeply in a few seconds.
