STORY: A bus plunges off a cliff while on a hairpin turn in Guatemala, killing at least 38 people and injuring dozens.

After pulling victims and survivors from the wreckage, rescue workers used a pulley to send bodies across a river at the bottom of the ravine where the bus had landed.

Relatives of victims watched as officials continued to identify passengers.

Investigators do not yet know what caused the crash or what was the final destination of the bus, which was traveling south toward Guatemala City.

Rescue workers said that conditions were dry and mostly sunny and that the bus was likely over capacity.
