Switzerland Bus Crash.Twenty-two children and six adults died when a bus crashed into the wall of a tunnel in Switzerland, police said. Another 24 children were injured in Tuesday night's wreck, authorities said. Three children are hospitalized in critical condition, Jean-Pierre Deslarzes, medical chief of the Canton Valais rescue organization, told a news conference Wednesday afternoon. Others are expected to be discharged from the hospital in the coming days. The bus was on its way back to Belgium after a ski trip when it slammed into the side of a highway tunnel in Sierre in the Swiss canton of Valais.It was carrying 52 people: two drivers, four other adults and 46 children, aged 11 and 12 years old. Prosecutor Olivier Elsig told reporters at the news conference that the cause of the crash was still under investigation, but initial inquiries indicated the bus, which was new, was not speeding and that the road conditions were good. Police have said the speed limit in the tunnel was 100 kilometers per hour (62 mph). Experts are studying CCTV images and speaking to witnesses and some of those on the bus who were less badly injured to find out what happened, Elsig said, adding that no other vehicle was involved in the crash. An autopsy will be carried out on the bus driver, who is among the dead. Investigators are focusing on three potential causes for the accident, he said -- a technical issue with the bus, a health problem with the driver or human error. Rescuers reported that the children were wearing their seat belts, he said, but the impact of the crash was so great that the belts did not save their lives. Christian Varone, police chief for Valais Canton, said investigators were still working to confirm the identities of the 28 people killed. All but two of those injured had been identified and their families contacted, he said. "This is a tragic day for Belgium," Belgian Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo said. He said there were 10 people of Dutch nationality among the victims as well as one of German and one of Polish origin. The survivors included 12-year-old twins, a girl and a boy, whose parents are a Spanish Catalan father and a Belgian mother, the Barcelona newspaper La Vanguardia reported Wednesday, citing family sources.
