The commander of the local fire department, Paulo Ferreira, told Lusa that six of the children were transported to the hospital in Guimarães, as a precaution.

The commander told Lusa that the bus crashed into a wall, about five kilometres from the school, and that the children were transferred to another vehicle that took them to school, where “some began to complain” of injuries.

It was there, he said, that the firefighters and the team of the Immediate Life Support (SIV) vehicle from Fafe provided assistance to the victims, resulting in some of them being taken to the hospital as a precaution.
