Horrific moment open top double-decker bus rolls over side of wall on hill killing nine tourists



This is the horrific moment an open top double-decker bus rolled over the side of a hill killing nine people and injuring dozens more.
The bus is believed to have been packed with tourists on a sightseeing tour in Lima, the capital of Peru, last night when the driver lost control.
It's not immediately clear what the cause was - but the driver appears to have been taking the corner at speed.
Footage taken from a stationary CCTV camera on the bend begins by showing a similar bus packed with sightseers passing by on the narrow road without incident.

The location is on a popular tourist route to a destination which gives sightseers a panoramic view of the city.
Seconds later another bus comes hurtling round the corner and it's clear the driver is not in full control.
The bus hit a wall and topples over the side.
MirrorOnline has cut the footage before it shows the awful moment that people - apparently not wearing seatbelts - fell out of the top of the bus before it overturned.
Rescuers were faced with horrific scenes.
At least 26 people were hurt in the crash and they reportedly include children.
The nationalities and ages of those who died is not known - although one is reported to be Canadian.
The tourists are believed to have been staying in the San Cristobal area.
