WATCH: Anxiety as tourist bus plunges into Indian Ocean ; shocking video drops

A tourist bus that was heading from South Coast, Diani to Mombasa on Sunday January 10, 2021, plunged into the Indian Ocean at the Likoni Crossing Channel.

The Pollmans Tours and Safaris bus was plunged into the Ocean at around 9am today when the driver of the bus was attempting to board the ferry when he missed the ramp.

“I tried to stop the bus but it kept on sliding,” the driver said, blaming the incident to the heavy rains pounding the region.

Kenya Ferry Services officers, Kenya Coast Guard and volunteers managed to remove the bus from the Indian Ocean waters.

No causality was reported from the incident as the driver and the conductor were rescued.

At the time of the accident, no passenger was onboard as they had already alighted. The tourists had been dropped to Diani on Saturday evening.

The Likoni channel which links the Mombasa Island and the mainland town of Likoni is used by 350,000 passengers and more than 6,000 vehicles daily.
