95 International 3800 DT466 Pros, please help

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1006225632769819&id=100001471 762030

If this link doesn't work, please tell me and I will post pics

I noticed a couple of these broken ribs last week, but as I removed the interior roof panels and two interior side panels, I found even more broken ribs!
I guess the only thing holding this bus together is the exterior skin and the few rivets that haven't pulled through the skin, because some of the ribs are broken completely through in more than one spot.

Fellow skoolie owners, please help!

When looking for advice it's all around better to post the story and pictures on skoolie.net instead of an external site.

Now,that being said, how is it even possible to break the ribs?! I've never heard of such a thing happening! The only thing I can think of is that it was rolled, but that should be VERY obvious. Yikes.

The bus was from a small town school in Oklahoma, so it's a very good possibility that it had nothing but back-road routes, and the roads in Oklahoma aren't that great anyway, let alone the back roads.

I will start posting pics
