I just heard on TV (in Evening news) about accident of Polish tourist-bus on the road in Serbia. It was said that five people lost lives, among them one woman with little child (many people seriously injured), when driver lost control over vehicle for (yet) unknown reasons. Polish tourists were in return from Bulgarian Varna.

There was Polish ambassador on Serbian TV who thanked to ``local Serbs of nearest town, to medical teams and to complete Serbian society for urgent help to injured Polish citizens.``

My deepest condolences to Poles because of this tragedy

Another reason to have national mourning. All medias excited to show weeping mothers. It's insane, can anyone tell me why so many fuss about it? Yeah kids are dead, terrible accident but when approximately 15 people dies on Polish road a day nobody cares. It is something usual in Poland big tragedy = big fuss. And nobody speaks about or helps people who die every day in other accidents. For example in Katowice when few people died in collapse of same exhibition hall. Families got help 'cause media was interested. And who helps families of killed in car accidents? No one.
