Search and rescue operation underway for victims of sunken microbus

Ahram Online , Sunday 10 Oct 2021

A search and rescue operation is currently underway to find any survivors in the Nile River after a microbus fell off the Al-Sahel bridge — which connects Cairo to Giza — on Sunday.


According to news reports, 5 speedboats from the River Rescue Department are leading the search and rescue along with divers, however, due to the high speed of the water current, tracking the submerged vehicle and victims has proven difficult.

Ahram Portal reported that the microbus fell into the river after the driver lost control of the vehicle while driving at a high speed.  

The victims have not been identified as of yet.
