  • A crane salvages the wreckage of a bus after it plunged off a bridge into the Yangtze River in China's southwestern Chongqing early on November 1

Surveillance footage showed the bus veered across the lanes, hit a vehicle, demolished a section of Yangtze River No 2 bridge's barrier and plunged into the river, where the water is about 70 metres [230 feet] deep.

The second video shows the moment the bus swerved on the bridge, getting out of its lane and into oncoming traffic.

Reports in the local media cited by EuroNews say that the woman missed her bus stop and, when she realized it, immediately asked the driver to pull over so she could get off.

Police said they pieced together what happened based on footage from the on-board recorder, which was recovered by divers, as well as 2,300 hours of surveillance videos along the bus route and numerous witness accounts.

Dashcam footage from an oncoming vehicle shows the bus veering off its lane, colliding with a auto and smashing through a bridge guardrail before plunging into the river.

The bus, which crashed on Sunday in the city of Chongqing, was lifted out of the water on Wednesday after an extensive and dramatic search-and-rescue effort. Approximately 15 people were on board, cops said.

Thirteen bodies were reported to have been found.

The driver turned his head to face her several times in the argument.

During the ensuing fight, the driver lost control and the bus went into the river.

"The behaviour of both the passenger and driver has severely endangered the safety of all other passengers and has violated the law, ' police said, adding the tragedy served as an 'extremely painful lesson".

The woman then used her mobile phone to strike the driver's shoulder, while the driver used his right hand to stop her attack and restrain her.
