Bus crosses flooded river in Columbia

WHAT A FOOL!!!!!!! I saw a video of a late model huge city bus drive right into a flooding river. Eventually the water was just below the windows. The front went down and water splashed the windshield. They made it! People on land were screaming from expecting the worst. Even in Columbia they called him a fool. Rear engine bus with the exhaust pipe up high.

Where? British Columbia (in Canada)? Colombia (definitely not in Canada)?

Crossing rivers is not always dangerous if you're in a truck or bus. I was on a bus in Nepal crossing a river that came to the top of the wheels, and it was quite fun for all of us on the roof (always the best place to be when taking local transport in some parts of the world).

Look at the thousands of buses just left sitting during Katrina in New Orleans. If I'd been the transportation mgr there I'd have called my people to work and told em go get your family out the load his thing with people and head for safe refuge.
