The bus broke down 35 km away from Dossor viilage of Makat district. When rescue team from Makat district center arrived to the site, 45 bus passengers and the driver were almost frozen. They called “112” emergency desk only 5 hours after the breakdown, when people could not tolerate cold temperature any more.
