At least 33 people were killed and 16 more injured after a bus flipped and plunged into a deep ravine near a Malaysian casino, reports the New Straits Times.

The bus was traveling to Malaysia when it lost control on a winding slope in central Genting Highlands, a popular destination that is home to Malaysia’s only casino, said fire department official Azizan Ismail.

“The Fire and Rescue Department has mobilized 150 men for the search and rescue operation,” Ismail told reporters.

Rescuers worked frantically to locate survivors, many of whom were thrown out of the bus as it rolled into the ravine. The 16 survivors were taken to the Selayang and Kuala Lumpur hospitals. Five are reported to be in serious condition.

Ismail said rescue operations would continue for at least two more hours.
