VIDEO:Scare As Tourist Bus Plunges Into Indian Ocean at Likoni Crossing Channel in Kenya

A tourist bus on Sunday morning plunged into the Indian Ocean at the Likoni Crossing Channel.

The Pollmans Tours and Safaris bus was travelling from South Coast to Mombasa Island when it plunged into the Ocean at around 9am.

The driver of the bus was attempting to board the ferry when he missed the ramp.

 “I tried to stop the bus but it kept on sliding,” the driver said, blaming the incident to the heavy rains pounding the region.

Kenya Ferry Services officers, Kenya Coast Guard and volunteers managed to remove the bus from the Indian Ocean waters.

No causality was reported from the incident as the driver and the conductor were rescued.
