City publishes names of Chinese victims in Arizona bus crash

SHANGHAI Tourism Administration published today the names of seven Chinese nationals killed and eight injured in Friday's bus crash on a highway near the Hoover Dam of Arizona in the United States.

The seven dead included Zhong Yujing from China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Zhu Guoying, Sun Mengqiu, Zhu Yongshun, Sheng Zhenquan from Shanghai, Ge Xiazhen from Hangzhou and the tour guide Chen Wenting, a spokesman with the administration said, quoting the list provided by the Chinese Consulate General in Los Angeles.

Another six tourists, all from the mainland, got injured in the accident. They are now in stable condition, the spokesman added.

Information provided by the Consulate General indicated eight tourists were injured. One of them came from Hong Kong and the other seven from the Chinese mainland.

The victims were with a 20-member tour group that had flown from Shanghai to San Francisco.

The accident happened during their visit to the Grand Canyon, an optional trip whose expenses were not included in the package price. Five members of the group chose not to participate in the excursion, the Shanghai Tourism Administration said.

Shanghai has set up a task force, with vice mayor Zhao Wen in charge, to assist emergency rescue and stay in close contact with the Chinese Consulate General in Los Angeles.

The tourism administration is assisting the victims' families to arrange travel to the United States.
