How saddening! Hope seems slim at such a point when humans are missing for hours under water, well, I pray a miracle happens for those missing.

From what I have learnt growing up you can't find survivors in water after 10 minutes. May their souls rest in peace

Lives are in danger u are hearing ballzing 1st to comment is it an achievement. You should have STOPPED at "may God help them" and that you made a comment before you saw any other posted doesn't mean ur "first" jst means Linda had not screened and posted them that's why 20ppl can be forming 1st to comment. Ok bye

So sad. Pray they make it. Btw why would Lagosians turn accident scenes to carnival grounds? People turn out in large numbers just to stand around and gawke. They at times even prevent emergency responders from smooth coordination.

Linda twas just one person in the car(a man). He dropped the others off already before the accident occurred. Meanwhile, the man"s family needs special prayers ooo..Few days before the accident, a lady hit a guy in my area n he was rushed to the hospital. They carried out a surgery on d guy cos he was bleeding internally. Plus he broke sum of his bones. Coincidentally, the lady that drove the car n the man that drove the Ikoyi Golf Club Van are siblings. God help them!!!

I sympathize with the victims of this terrible accident, i pray that the missing people will be found.

The photos used in this story complement the story. As we can see, there are four different pictures in this story.

The first picture clearly shows so many people looking down into the river after the accident happened. While the second picture tells the readers how the crowd were trying to take the van out of the river.

While the third picture shows them pulling out the van and the last picture vividly tells the reader how damaged the van was after being pulled out.

These photos were arranged in a picture sequence format for the readers to understand, also this picture sequence can stand alone and still tell a story.

Using a picture sequence is another way of telling a story how it happened chronologically.
