CCTV cameras captured the horrific moment a tourist bus fell off a bridge in Jilin on July 1, killing 10 Korean tourists.
The bus was carrying 26 South Korean public servants and two Chinese civilians when it passed a sharp turn, crashed into the guardrail on the side of the bridge and plunged to the ground.
The Chinese bus driver, who was believed to have been speeding at the time, was also killed in the crash.
The South Korean victims were among 148 other government officials who’d arrived in China for a training trip that was organized by the Local Government Officials’ Development Institute, Yonhap News reports.
Choi Doo-yeong, the South Korean president of the state-run institute, was found dead on Sunday after falling from his hotel room in Ji’an, where he’d been sent to deal with the aftermath of the incident. Police investigation ruled out homicide, indicating that he probably jumped from the four-story building intentionally.
A government official cited in Yonhap said that Choi “was known to have felt a heavy responsibility for the tragic accident as the head of the institute.”
