Fourty nine students were injured this morning when a bus they were travelling in fell into a canal in Maharashtra's Palghar, about 100 km from Mumbai.
The bus was travelling on the Pivli-Vada road with 49 children on board when it skidded off the road at about 6:30 am. The driver lost the control as he was trying to save a woman who suddenly emerged in front of the bus, said police.
All the injured were rushed to the hospital.
More details are awaited.
