A BRITISH teenager crawled through bus wreckage with a broken back to escape the horror crash that killed 13 students.
Tallulah Lyons, 19, was one of 34 people injured in the crash in Tarragona, yesterday.
Tallulah, a student at the University of Southampton, currently studying in Spain, explained how she crawled past the bodies of her classmates.
“But I’m alive and well with just three broken vertabraes and a broken chest bone but I will make a full recovery,” she said.
“I just remember waking up and people were on the floor.
“I was trying to crawl out with friends – and that’s when we realised some people were trapped. It took about two hours to get everyone out.”
Two Irish students were also injured while on their way back from the renowned Fallas fireworks festival in Valencia.
Seven of those killed in the crash were from Italy, while all were aged between 19 and 25.
The other victims were made up of two Germans, one Austrian, one French woman, a Romanian and a woman from Uzbekistan.
