Muscat: A tragic road crash in Muscat claimed lives of three students of Pakistan School Muscat (PSM) on Wednesday morning.
"Three students died and two are battling for their lives in the intensive care unit. We are praying for the speedy recovery of the two who are still in the ICU," Muhammad Zakriya Babur, principal of PSM, told Times of Oman.
"The accident happened early in the morning when the bus was on its way to school. The bus was coming from Mabelah with children living in and around that area. Almost all the kids were sleeping because they start early in the morning. We still don't know the actual reason behind the accident, which happened near Petroleum Development Oman (PDO)," the PSM principal added.
The victims – two boys and one girl – have been identified as Sayyid Fahad, 10; Awais Nazir, 9, and Fareeh Parvez, 16. Sayyid was a class 5 student while Awais studied in class 4 and Fareeha was in class 12.
Meanwhile, the two boys who are battling for life in the ICU have been named as Faisal (class 9) and Jawad (class 1).
"The Almighty will not disappoint us. Now, everything is in his hands. I am praying for both the kids who are in the ICU," Faisal's father said.
