Two children died on the spot while 5 died on the way to hospital. Another child died in the hospital. Eleven others including the driver of the Omni have been injured. Some of them are undergoing treatment at the local hospital while others have been rushed to Manipal hospital.

Among the eight dead are six girls and two boys. Three of them have been identified as Nikhita, studying in 7th standard, Calista, a student of LKG, and Ananya, studying in first standard. They were accompanied by teacher Philomena who was also injured.

Apart from Philomena, the other injured have been identified as Omni driver Martin, Deekshith of 4th standard, Vinora of 5th standard, Melissa of 10th standard, Veera of 10th standard, Lisel of 1st standard, Anson of 6th standard, Delvin of UKG, Renvil and Mariya of LKG, Princita of 1st standard, Rosten of 3rd standard, Clarissa of 1st standard, and Alvita of 2nd standard.
Again exposes Omni being used as school transport. Also I counted 18 names, driver & teacher with 16 kids, all crammed in a Omni.
