Thirty-one of the injured were taken to local hospitals. The others were treated at the theme park's first aid center. The bus, which was reported to be carrying foreign workers on a trip to the park, rolled down an embankment, after coming down a hill and missing a curve.
"It's a narrow country road," a witness told the BBC. "It's mayhem, absolute mayhem. We had a torrential downpour of rain just before it happened."
