What a bad day!!! If joy turned sorrowful when no fewer than 43 wedding guests, and the couple died in an accident along Anjozorobe, northeast of Antananarivo, Madagascar’s capital.

It was gathered that the lorry conveying the victims fell into a river from a bridge.

Dr. Lova Andriamanantsoa, mayor of Anjozorobe told Xinhua by telephone that “Forty five, including nine children, 27 women and nine men, were killed on spot while 24 others injured, during the accident.”

In rural areas of Madagascar, there are few cars and the road condition is usually very bad, especially during the rainy season.

Only a lorry is practicable to transport many people, a reason the family rented a lorry to transport their guests during the wedding.
