What could have been an horrendous incident was avoided by a marvellous bus driver earlier today when the brakes failed in his school bus full of children from the colegio in La Florida, La Orotava. The bus, which the children say was not going fast, was in the Buen Paso area heading along the TF5 towards Icod de los Vinos, and as the driver tried to use the clutch to slow it down as it went through a tunnel he shouted to the children to fasten their seatbelts. The bus ended up several metres down a small barranco and mercifully no-one received more than minor cuts and bruises.
