Surrounded by the turquoise Red Sea, palm trees and sand dunes, the Hilton Hurghada Plaza offers guests a slice of paradise. But Ivy Chan Yuk-kwan, 49, found herself instead recalling nightmarish visions of Tuesday's Jetour Holiday bus crash on a route between Hurghada and Luxor. 'Whenever I close my eyes, I picture my best friend dying in pain,' said Ms Chan with red, teary eyes. The bandage on her left forehead was stained yellow from iodine, and crusted with dried blood. Scars ran along one arm, while her legs were bruised heavily. Still, she was one of the lucky ones. Her 50-year-old friend, who sat on the opposite side of the bus, died in the crash. Her friend's husband and son, who were also on the trip, were flown to Paris for treatment. 'The driver should take the full responsibility. Some of us started to yell 'slow down' as he suddenly sped around a corner - but that was too late already,' said Ms Chan. Her brother was flying in from Hong Kong to escort her back home yesterday. 'I just cannot wait to go back home,' she said. Another survivor, identified only as Mr Leung, lost his wife in the crash and was grappling with what he described as the 'horrific inhumanity' of passers-by who ignored screams for help. 'I am absolutely sure members of one Hong Kong tour group - one at the very least - got off their coach and took a look at the chaos. But they decided to go back to continue their trip,' he said. 'At least three of the deceased would have been saved if someone helped me lift up parts of the bus,' he said. Mr Leung said he heard that some people from Hong Kong had said that the vehicles passing by were not allowed to stop on that highway. 'I would like to find out who gave such an excuse. Whoever said that was not human.' Designer Simon Ip, who lost his 56-year-old father and his 50-year-old mother, was still trying to find the words to describe his feelings. Staring ahead with an empty gaze, he said: 'My mind was all blank when I was told that both my parents were killed. I have not shed a tear since then - I keep myself occupied figuring how to properly send my parents' bodies back to Hong Kong. I told myself that I must calm down.' Doctors said many were screaming or crying when the injured arrived at the hospital. Nearly all the 14 deceased died of brain haemorrhages or skull fractures, said Amin Ramzy, of the General Hospital of Hurghada. 'We had difficulties identifying them,' he said.
