At least four Chinese tourists remained in Eastern Ontario hospitals in critical condition Wednesday, two days after their tour bus crashed into a rock cut on Highway 401 near Prescott.


Three patients remained at the Kingston Health Sciences Centre’s in critical condition and one patient remained at Brockville General Hospital in critical condition with life-threatening injuries, according to hospital officials.


The Union Tour Express bus with 37 people on board went off the road and slammed into a rocky embankment near Prescott at about 2:30 p.m. Monday.


A 54-year-old man who was aboard the bus that had left Ottawa for Toronto died of his injuries Tuesday, police said. The driver of the bus suffered minor injuries.


A spokeswoman for Grenville County OPP said there was no update made public by investigators Wednesday.


The Ottawa Hospital said it still had two patients in its care on Wednesday: one was in stable condition, the other in “satisfactory” condition.


Minister-counsellors Heng Xiaojun and Zhao Haisheng from the Chinese embassy in Ottawa went to the hospitals to visit the injured tourists. All but the driver and one of two tour guides aboard the bus were citizens of China and the embassy hailed local efforts to help them.


First responders “spared no effort to treat the injured,” according to a statement on Wednesday, while Canadian agencies and volunteers “actively provided assistance.


“We are grateful to the Canadian side for the treatment and related assistance provided to the Chinese tourists.”
