The driver then suddenly yanks the wheel hard to the left and the bus veers onto incoming traffic, striking a vehicle before breaking through the rails of the bridge crossing the Yangtze River, in the southwest city of Chongqing.

Police divers recovered the bus surveillance camera on Wednesday.

According to investigations, the 48-year-old female passenger had missed her stop and asked the driver to stop in the road.

Police in China released dashcam footage of the fatal bus crash.

A San Diego sociologist John Skrentny told NPR in 2010, the U.S.is an anomaly in the world when it comes to this issue. Donald Trump has unveiled plans to ban babies born to illegal immigrants from automatically becoming USA citizens.

Due to the loss of control of the bus, which was travelling on a bridge in China, the bus swerved widely and hit a vehicle before crashing through the bridge railing and plunging around 160 feet (that's just just 20 feet shorter than the recently-inaugurated Statue of Unity, by the way) into the river.

A crane salvages the wreck of the bus from the Yangtze River in Chongqing. Fifteen people were on board the bus at the time.

The woman then used her mobile phone to strike the driver's shoulder, while the driver used his right hand to stop her attack and restrain her.

Chongquing police also released dashcam video from a nearby auto showing the bus crash.

Four passengers, who got off earlier, confirmed that a medium-height woman had quarrelled with the driver because she missed her stop, local police said.

"The behaviour of both the passenger and driver has severely endangered the safety of all other passengers and has violated the law, ' police said, adding the tragedy served as an 'extremely painful lesson".

But the new footage shows the driver was being hit by a passenger and then struck her back.
