According to the information, the bus in which they were traveling fell into a deep and flooded ditch with an additional balance of 14 injured passengers.

"Among the deceased are 11 minors (other sources specify 12), between two and eight years old, who were probably traveling sitting on their parents' laps," local police official Khadim Hussain told reporters.

The transport "fell into a water-filled ditch on a road swept away by floods this summer" in Sindh province, Hussain said.

The tragedy occurred on Thursday night, so presumably "the driver failed to see the detour sign on the road and the vehicle fell into the canal," added the police officer.

Pakistan ranks third among the countries with the most road accidents in the world due to reckless drivers and poor road conditions that worsen in the monsoon season.
