The bus had veered into the wrong lane and collided with an oncoming vehicle in Chongqing on Sunday before it plunged into the Yangtze River.

Rescue workers and boats on the site where a public bus plunged into the Yangtze River after colliding with a auto in Chongqing, China on Oct 28, 2018.

A floating crane pulled the wreckage of the bus from the river, Wednesday evening, after it sank to a reported depth of 70 meters (230 feet) underwater.

A 10-second clip from the on-board camera released by Chongqing police showed a female passenger yelling at the male driver while he was steering, shortly after 10 a.m. on Sunday.

A fist fight between a woman passenger and a driver caused a bus to plunge from a bridge into the mighty Yangtze River in southwest China, killing at least 13 people, police said on Friday.

The bus collided with an oncoming auto before smashing through the guardrail and into the Yangtze River on Sunday. However, Liu did not get off and later asked the driver to stop the bus when she realised she missed her destination. So far 13 bodies have been found and identified.

Another said it was "heartbreaking" to hear the terrified passengers, while a Weibo user called Liza said there should be a law banning passengers from distracting bus drivers.

When he refused, the woman became enraged and hit him with her mobile phone before the driver lost control of the vehicle. It doesn't look as if the driver had time even to hit the brakes before the bus went off the bridge. They also made public footage presented to them by another driver, who had a dashcam on and was traveling from the opposite direction.
