Bus crash victim seeks injury compensation

A holidaymaker from Blackburn is seeking injury compensation after the bus he was travelling on plunged down a cliff in Egypt.

Dafraz Usman, 29, was returning from a quad bike excursion on a minibus in July when his holiday turned into a horrifying experience, the Lancashire Telegraph reports.

He described how his fellow passengers were concerned about the speed of the vehicle and the fact that the driver was talking on a mobile phone, leading to one man shouting at the driver to slow down.

Seconds later, the bus lost control and hurtled down a cliff, injuring several passengers and leaving Mr Usman with a broken leg.

"It was horrendous," he told the paper.

"Some people actually went through the windows and I still don’t know what has happened to them. I’m just happy to be here."

He is now seeking injury compensation and payment for the cost of his ruined holiday.

The news follows reports that a man who suffered kidney failure after eating a contaminated burger in Egypt has received GBP 750,000 in injury compensation.ADNFCR-2070-ID-19340809-ADNFCR
