A public bus in Hanoi ran over a student's leg on Tuesday when she fell under the back wheels.


Eyewitnesses said the bus, belonging to the Hanoi Public Bus Enterprise, had just departed from Kim Ma station when the girl chased after it.


She managed to jump on the vehicle but the door closed and trapped one leg. She was dragged along the street for several meters.


Passengers heard her shouting and asked the driver to stop. Just as the doors opened to release her leg, she fell under the back wheels.


Her left thigh was crushed.


Local residents said the victim is a student at Hanoi University of Trade Union and was catching the bus to school.


Hanoi Public Bus Enterprise said the bus has been detained and authorities are investigating the case further.
