Only one person is said to have survived after the bus fell into the Neelum river on Friday night.

Rescuers have found only four bodies so far, police said, with a search operation continuing.

Authorities said the lone survivor told rescuers 25 passengers were aboard when the bus entered the river about 30 miles north of Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistan's part of Kashmir.
