Twenty-seven primary school pupils were taken to hospital after being thrown from their seats when their bus braked to avoid hitting a pedestrian in Kwai Chung. The accident happened at about 7.40am yesterday as 50 pupils from SKH Yan Laap Memorial Primary School were being driven to their Kwai Chung campus. Police said the 56-year-old driver was forced to brake abruptly in Tai Wo Hau Road when a pedestrian ran into the road. The driver did not make a report to police at the scene, but continued his journey to deliver the pupils to the Sheung Kok Street school. At the school, some of the students complained of feeling unwell and staff called police at about 8.45am. A school spokeswoman said as a precaution 27 students were sent to hospital for check-ups. 'Most of them felt dizzy or complained of nausea. Two complained of arm or neck pain,' she said. The pupils - 15 boys and 12 girls aged between six and 11 - were taken to Princess Margaret Hospital or Yan Chai Hospital. Police said the driver passed a breathalyser test and no one was arrested over the incident.
