There were 53 people on board, including two drivers.

Are we sure it was the brakes?

I disagree, subby. The driver is being remembered for his courageous announcement, since he was able to crash the bus in a way that all his passengers survived.

// If he had said something like "Screw the  problem with the brakes. We've got a schedule." before heading down the hill, people wouldn't have been as kind.

Drive slower when going down a  farking mountain.

And THAT'S how the heros die.

The article seemed to really go out of their way to portray this guy as a doomed hero. Family pre-intervention?

Hm, I always thought "Hold my beer and watch this" were the last words you probably don't want to be remembered for

I guess buses in Europe don't have 1st gear you can put them in to slow your vehicle going down hill?
 
2013-04-17 08:12:28 AM
And how does a diesel explode into flames?
 
2013-04-17 08:12:46 AM
That was his last words because he was trying to warn the riders which probably saved lives. He should be remembered as a hero.

One of the worst feelings ever.... time to slow down, hit the brakes and the pedal goes to the floor.. first you say it, then you do it....

I used to frequent a mountain pass up in Alaska and was amused at the people that rode their brakes down a 2 mile stretch of road.

CSB time:

One of my friends, while traveling abroad, was in a Peruvian bus over-the-mountain-edge crash which killed a couple dozen people.  He walked away from it, along with two other people.  It went over the edge and started tumbling down into a valley.  As soon as he felt it start going over the edge, he grabbed the support for the luggage rack above him.  Apparently, as the bus rolled and tumbled, he pulled himself against the luggage rack as hard as he could and didn't let go until it came to rest.  He felt people bouncing off him as the bus kept rolling.

Now, whenever we're riding together and he starts dozing off, I'll snap the wheel a little bit to jerk the car, and he'll awaken startled and reach to grab something.  That's what friends are for, right?

Wild card, biatches!

So crashing a bus and becoming a hero is like Catholicism?
Repent loudly enough at the end and all sins are forgiven...

Last words you want to hear: "Just like the gypsy woman said."

When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep. Not screaming in terror like his passengers.

Crap, too early in the morning.When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather. Not screaming in terror like his passengers.

Why is this guy a hero again?
 
2013-04-17 04:31:05 PM
"It's not loaded."

"You cut the power, right?"

"Red touch yellow, give 'im a kiss hello."

"That feels great, [her sister's name]."
 
2013-04-17 05:16:06 PM
"No point in steering now, eh."

2KanZam: Why is this guy a hero again?


I read the whole stupid article trying to figure that out. Maybe the cliff that he crashed into was a terrorist? We know that in any narrative these days there is at least one hero and one terrorist.
