Tanay survivors told more about the last seconds of their life before the tragedy.

One of those who survived, named Joever Sumugat, admits that the bus driver apologized them after realizing that he won't be able to stop the vehicle due to not working brakes.

"Nagsisigawan na po kami kasi sabi ng bus driver nawalan daw po siya ng preno, nagsosorry siya sa amin. Sabi niya, 'Sorry nawalan ako ng preno' tapos nagtayuan na po kami, sigawan, tapos iba po nagdadasal," Sumugat said.

Another man who survived the disaster is named Jason Cristobal. He is a first year student and he says that he heard some unfamiliar sound after the driver tried to hit the brakes.

"Nagpreno po sya. 'Pag preno po niya may tumunog po, may pumilantik na lang po kaming narinig. Bumangga na po kami sa gilid ng bundok tapos sa mga concrete barrier, tapos muntik na kaming mahulog sa bangin pero naiwas niya po," he said said.

He also added: "Ginawa na lang po naming mga nasa likod kumapit na lang po kami tapos nagsign of the cross na lang kami ng sign of the cross, nagdasal na lang po kami na si God na po yung bahala." After this the man went into tears.
