A tour bus carrying German tourists crashed on Portugal's Madeira Island on Wednesday, killing 29 people and injuring 27 others, local authorities said. The bus carrying 55 people rolled down a steep hillside after veering off the road on a bend east of the capital, Funchal, and struck at least one house, local mayor Filipe Sousa told cable news channel SIC. "I have no words to describe what happened. I cannot face the suffering of these people," he said. Pedro Calado, vice president of Madeira's regional government, told a news conference that the injured, including the Portuguese driver and a local tour guide, were taken to a local hospital. He did not say whether anyone not on the bus was among the victims. He declined to provide a breakdown of the victims' nationalities, but Mr Sousa said the bus was carrying a group of German tourists.

Three of the injured underwent surgery, 23 were under observation and two were discharged. There were no children among the victims, the hospital said. A regional civil protection official said the tourists involved in the accident were aged between 40 and 50 years old. Germany's Bild daily also reported that many of the tourists were retirees, and those killed included 18 women and 11 men.

At least 14 ambulances were said to be at the scene, next to Quinta Splendida Wellness & Botanical Garden. Residents said the weather was fine at the time of the accident, which happened in daylight in the early evening. Authorities said they were investigating the possible cause.
