The school bus was carrying 48 students and the driver. The crash killed more than half of the students, 26 children, and the driver died. The school bus was not recovered from the water until three days after the incident.
Michael Crisp released a documentary about the crash in 2010. Nine years later, he uncovered a new video of never-before-seen footage of the school bus being pulled up onto the riverbank, according to the article.
A local man donated the new footage that was shot by his grandfather 61 years ago, the article reported. A new version can be seen in the documentary, “A Life Of Its Own,” on April 10.
