Bus crash kills 11 children

EDIT CONTAINS 4:3 MATERIAL Eleven children between the ages of four and six were killed when the minivan bringing them to school crashed into a pond in southern China. The driver of the van said she lost control of the vehicle on poor road conditions. Four children who survived the crash are in stable condition at a nearby hospital. One resident saw the accident unfold, and was able to save two children... one was his own daughter. "I saw a teacher holding up a child above the surface of the water" , he said. "I recognized the child was my daughter when I reached out and pulled her up." There were 17 people on the seven-seater vehicle at the time of the crash. The driver, who also runs the school, said she woke up late and tried to fit all the students in the van at once. She is being detained for questioning. Officials say the private kindergarten does not have the proper permits, although it has been operational for the past six years. Fifteen children, one teacher and the driver were all packed into the seven-seat vehicle. Search and rescue teams scoured the pond for any additional survivors.
