NEW DELHI — A bus carrying wedding guests plunged into a reservoir, killing 29 people in the southern Indian state of Karnataka, a police official said Wednesday. At least five people swam to safety.

The bus veered off the road and fell into the deep waters of the reservoir late Tuesday, said Ramesh Babu, a police control room official in Mysore, a city near the site of the accident.

Five people who swam ashore were hospitalized, Babu said. Local villagers and police recovered 29 bodies, including those of 25 women and children, and divers were scouring the reservoir to find more bodies, he said.

It was not immediately clear how many people were traveling in the bus, which was returning from a wedding in a nearby village.
