The city bus body, designed to withstand any external impact to protect passengers, came out of the wreckage with traces of the disaster intact.
The city bus body, which was crushed flat as if the roof was collapsing, went to the National Institute of Scientific Investigation to find out the truth of the disaster.
At the site of the collapse of the demolished building in the redevelopment area of Hak-dong, Dong-gu, Gwangju, today (10th), the second day of the accident, the body of a city bus was towed.
The city bus body that the 119 rescue team pulled out of the concrete pile with heavy equipment is the space where the victims of this accident spent the last moments of their lives.
Nine passengers were killed in the accident while returning home from work or heading for a new destination.
It is said that the sad story includes a high school sophomore male student returning home from school after meeting fellow club members, and a mother in her 60s heading home after shopping for her son's birthday.
The 119 crew members who rescued the sunken passengers from the crushed body explained that most of the dead were passengers sitting in the back seat of the bus.

Eight people, including the driver and the rest of the passengers, who were seriously injured, were rescued from the relatively undamaged front seats of the bus.
They were able to escape from the disaster site one after another by the 119 vehicles that secured the front window space at the beginning of the rescue.
If you look at the black box of a nearby driving vehicle and CCTV footage of the shop, which recorded the scene at the time of the accident, the bus is buried under the rubble of a completely collapsed demolished building as soon as it stops at the bus stop.
Fire officials said no one was found buried outside the vehicle.
The National Forensic Service is planning to analyze the body of the city bus in detail to determine the cause of death of the victims of this disaster.
Today, on the second day of the disaster, when the search to find out whether there are any buried persons except for city bus passengers, such as passers-by and construction officials on the site, is completed, a joint on-site investigation with related organizations to determine the cause of the collapse will be conducted.
