Brake Fails, Bus Slides into Seine River

A tour bus parked near the Eiffel Tower rolled down a slope and ended up in Paris' Seine River on Thursday. A tourist, Michael Ambrosia, shot video of the bus as it sank. Le Figaro reports the bus was transporting Austrian tourists, but no one was aboard at the time of the accident.

User notes: I was standing next to the Seine River and heard a sound. It was the sound of a large tour bus jumping a two step curb onto a sidewalk. The bus kept going and rolled right into the river. By this time I was pulling my camera out and running. I got bumped on the side by a guy and took a fall, sliding right on my camera. Got up, ran to the scene and started the video in the process. This happened around 8:00pm July 29, 2010.
