A bus crash in the southern Brazilian state of Santa Catarina has killed 51 people, police said.

The bus, en route from the neighboring state of Parana, swerved off a curve and over a cliff before crashing in a wooded area.

Police did not know how many passengers in all were aboard the bus or whether the driver was one of the victims, but said that at least six survivors were being treated for injuries.

Rescue crews are reportedly still trying to rescue survivors and recover the bodies of the victims.
