In a freak accident and one that speaks in abundance about the pathetic condition of public buses, a 30 year old woman fell off a running bus as its floor gave away.
The woman was severely injured in the accident that happened on board a Tamil Nadu transport bus which was passing through Punalur in Kollam, Kerala and a CCTV footage of the incident has gone viral on social media.
The video shows two buses passing, and when the third bus passes through, the woman can be seen falling through.
Swathy, a resident of Kayamkulam, got shoulder bone injuries, and was reportedly travelling with her husband from Thenkassi to Kottarakkara on Tuesday.
The floor of the bus was broken just above the wheels, but thankfully for the woman, the absence of other vehicles avoided a tragedy.
Punalur police has taken the bus into custody.
