Two girls from Avao died after a bus overturned in strong flood waters in Savaii on Saturday afternoon.

Tuasivi hospital staff confirmed the deaths, one a 12 year old and the other a 5 year old. Others have been brought to the Tupua Tamasese Meaole Hospital for their injuries, some serious.

“We are not sure how many people have been brought here from the first trip of the ferry for treatment because their wounds were serious,” said a hospital staff member.

He did not want to be named.

The bus was travelling from Itu o Tane district to the Salelologa wharf to catch the 2 o’clock ferry when the accident happened.

The bus overturned at Lano in flash flooding while passengers from all ages were still inside.
