The head of the team that responded to the emergency, Geiner González, explained that the accident occurred in the vicinity of the small agricultural city of Los Chiles (north) and that the injured were transferred to the hospital in the city of San Carlos, about 90 km from the place of the tragedy.

Through a video, the lifeguard asserted: "We have overturned a bus off the road […]one [de los heridos] He was transferred in critical condition, at the moment ten were transferred in urgent condition and nine in stable condition”.

Likewise, it was learned that the accident occurred at dawn, shortly before 04:00 (local time, 10:00 GMT) and that, on the bus, "some 60 to 65 migrants" were traveling. They apparently came from Panama and intended to cross into Nicaragua to continue on to the United States (USA).

In search of the so-called "American dream", the movement through Central America is the way that thousands of people decide to achieve it, undertaking a dangerous journey, most of the time illegal.

On February 16, around 40 people died in Panama when a bus with migrants who had crossed the Darien jungle, bordering Colombia, also overturned; among them were Venezuelans, Ecuadorians, Haitians and Cubans.
