The president of the Xunta, Alfonso Rueda, went this Sunday to the scene of the accident in which a bus left the road and plunged from a bridge into the Lérez river, in the Pontevedra municipality of Cerdedo-Cotobade, and in the that four people have lost their lives and another three remain missing.

From there, he has conveyed his condolences to the families of the victims and has thanked the emergency services for their work in this event.

“It is tremendous to always have to talk about an accident like this, but at this time it is much more gruesome. We are going to continue working and recover the bodies as soon as possible and that the injured recover as soon as possible,” he said in statements to the media in the point.

Along with him, the second vice president of the Xunta, Diego Calvo, and the delegate of the autonomous administration in Pontevedra, Luis López, have also attended the scene of the accident.

Questioned about the possible withdrawal of the bus with two cranes, Rueda explained that first it will be checked “if it is safe” since these cranes are “of great tonnage”, so “it is necessary to see if it is safe and if the bridge can withstand the crane and bus tonnage”.
