Man saves bus from plunging into ravine in Austrian Alps
VIENNA: The short reflexes of a French vacationer saved a coach carrying 22 folks from plunging right into a ravine within the Austrian Alps, police stated Sunday.
The 65-year-old man was considered one of 21 French vacationers within the coach when the motive force fell unwell and collapsed on a high-altitude street close to town of Schwaz in western Austria.
A part of the car was hanging over the street’s guard rail, about to fall right into a 100-metre (330-feet) precipice, when the person leapt from his front-row seat and pulled the brake on the final second.
