Two Chinese boys ride under bus for 80km

Two Chinese boys travelled 80km in the undercarriage of a bus.

The two boys are from a poor village in southern Guangxi, and had been trying to reach their parents, who work in neighbouring Guangdong province.

They were reported missing on 23 November by their teacher, and found on the same day in the undercarriage of a vehicle at a bus station.

The boys were “around eight or nine years old” and were found by security workers when the vehicle stopped at a station en route. They had travelled for about three miles along “steep slopes” and staff spoke of their “surprise” to find that they were unharmed.
