The three surviving children of horrific bus crash in Tanzania have reached Sioux City in Iowa for treatment after much of roadblocks and hindrances at official level.

The three are aged about 12 or 13 years and will be getting treatment further at Mercy Medical Center, some 8,400 miles from Tanzania.

Mothers of the three school students, two girls and a boy, one doctor and a nurse too flew with them to Iowa and the cooperation of US government officials, Tanzanian government and air transport by Samaritan’s Purse helped them to get to Sioux City.

The bus was on a mission trip and crashed into a ravine killing 32 children, two teachers and the bus driver too.

STEMM happened to be on the crash scene and helped triage the victims, said STEMM co-founder Jon Gerdts.

He said, “The (injuries) are not life-threatening… but the fractures are complex enough to need help they wouldn’t get there. How they recover could be life-changing.”

He added identifying the surviving children among the dead were most urgent need and the members did a great job.
