At least 26 people died when the bus they were traveling in apparently lost its brakes and plunged into a deep ravine in a northern Philippine mountain town, in one of the country’s deadliest road accidents in years. The rest of the more than 50 passengers were retrieved by rescuers who struggled with ropes to descend down the 24-meter-deep ravine to reach the wreckage in Nueva Ecija province’s Carranglan town, said disaster-response officer Mark Raymond Cano. Many of the passengers had serious injuries and were taken to hospitals, with parents being separated from their children in the confusion.
