TAIPEI, April 24, 2009 (AFP) - One tourist from mainland China was killed and five others were injured when a construction crane fell on their bus in Taiwan's capital Friday, an official said.
"One man was killed on the spot and five others were hurt and sent to two hospitals," a Taipei city fire department official told AFP.
The six were part of a tour group of 25, from southern Guangdong province, who had to be pulled from their bus after it was smashed by the falling crane, the official said.
The crane fell on the bus from the 37th storey of a building under construction near Taipei 101, once the world's tallest skyscraper.
Local television stations said two of the five injured were in a critical condition.
Police are investigating the accident.
