Grieving Families Visit Site

Grieving Families Visit Site, Belgian military planes were on standby Thursday to fly home the bodies of 22 children and six adults killed in a school bus crash in a Swiss Alpine tunnel.

As parents of the children flew to Switzerland Wednesday to visit the site where a bus carrying children from two Belgian schools crashed, Belgium’s Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo said he could find no words of comfort for devastated relatives.

“When we lose an adult it’s dramatic, when we lose a child there are no words… because the pain is so great that there is nothing to relieve the pain,” Di Rupo told a press conference in Sion, Switzerland, near the site of the disaster.

Forty six children and four teachers from two Belgian schools were returning to Belgium from a skiing holiday late Tuesday when their coach slammed into a concrete wall in a motorway tunnel near the town of Sierre in the Swiss Alps.
