- Man took a selfie before embarking on the bus and after it crashed and flipped
- Bus believed to have been traveling between Quelimane to Beira in Mozambique
- Reports also suggested three people died, including a mother and two-year-old
A man who took a selfie before and after being involved in a bus crash has gone viral on social media.
The photos seem to have been taken in Mozambique and appear to show a 65-passenger bus traveling between Quelimane to Beira.
Some local reports also suggest that three people were killed in the crash, including a mother and her two-year-old son.
The man took a selfie before embarking on the bus, which is believed to have been traveling in Mozambique
He then uploaded this photo after the crash, showing the bus overturned in the background and police attending the scene
The man can be seen posing for a selfie before getting on the bus, with fellow passengers climbing on in the background, including families with children.
The second selfie shows the man in a similar position but without his half-smile as police and passengers surround the overturned bus.
The accident, involving a Nagi Investiments vehicle, is believed to have taken place on the Mucosa River near the village of Gorongosa in Mozambique.
It resulted in injuries to at least 37 people with some of them being serious.
They are believed to have been rushed to Gorongosa health centre, where they are receiving medical treatment.
According to district administrator Manuel Jamaica the accident may have been caused by speeding.
However, the driver, Amisse Mussa, 48, blamed mechanical failure, which he said made it impossible for him to control the vehicle on the bridge.
Some passengers are also thought to have reported the driver for driving too fast and claim that he ignored repeated requests to slow down.
The Gorongosa administrator coincidentally passed the bus travelling in the opposite direction an hour before the accident and reported that it was traveling at high speed then, too.
