Bus plunges into ravine in Indonesia, leaving at least twenty five dead

At time of posting, BBC is showing its recent dreadful reporting incompetence. 150 metres does not equal 1600 feet.

Excellent post showing 1) a plunge and 2) the dangers of m****c in reporting.

Well done.

They've corrected it. And it doesn't matter if it's 500 or 1600 feet, it's only the last foot that dangerous.

Bro, I think I may have been baptized in absentia by Mormon in laws. I kinda figured one had to be...like...dead for that.

VIDEO: Car plunges off cliff along Highway 1 in San Mateo County
BAY AREA
by: CNN/KRON

Posted: Jan 2, 2020 / 02:37 PM PST / Updated: Jan 2, 2020 / 02:44 PM PST
SAN MATEO COUNTY (CNN/KRON) — A car plunged off a cliff and the shocking moment was caught on camera.

The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office released video Wednesday showing a dark colored SUV speeding along the shoulder on Highway 1 near Gray Whale Cove before driving off the cliff.

The car doesn’t slow down before driving off the cliff and disappearing from the frame.

The base of the cliff has water that reaches up to 40 feet deep.

Search crews went looking for the car and the driver but only found tracks and car parts.

Authorities are now investigating.

One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn't belong,
Can you tell which thing is not like the others
By the time I finish my song?

Did you guess which thing was not like the others?
Did you guess which thing just doesn't belong?
If you guessed number 4 is not like the others,
Then you're absolutely... right!
