A group of UK mission students, in Ecuador to work at a medical clinic, come upon victims of a bus crash.
The group was heading to the Andes Mountains when the cars in front of them stopped, revealing a bus and tanker truck had collided.
The driver of the bus died.
Many others were injured.
It was a situation, most of the group says, was unlike anything they'd ever seen.
