How a River Enziu Survivor Escaped Death

A survivor of the chilling River Enziu bridge tragedy that claimed over 28 lives has finally spoken.

The lucky man was among the tens of choir members who were on their way to a wedding ceremony before they met the accident on the swelling bridge.

“That is the moment that the bus fell and started sinking,” he told Citizen Digital.

According to the media reports, the middle aged survivor, though still in shock, is grateful to God for giving him another chance to be alive.

He has revealed that as the bus was submerging inside the swollen river waters, he saw darkness inside that bus and quickly started looking for some space for light. he noticed something was not right.

He would immediately rush to backdoor as the bus continued turning upside down. When he arrived at the door, he saw a ray of light and that is when he struggled to swim away before rescuers came to pick him up.

Further investigations have indicated that the bus driver was reluctant to cross the bridge but his passengers piled pressure on him because they were getting late to the wedding.
