At Least 5 Killed, Dozens Injured in Pedestrian Bridge Collapse

At least five people have died and 36 others were injured after a foot bridge collapsed in Mumbai, India. 

The pedestrian bridge gave way during the evening rush hour in India’s financial capital. The collapse also blocked the flow of traffic in the area, with an excavator coming to the scene to help clear out some of the debris. The bridge leads to one of India’s largest transfer stations, the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, which is used by tens of thousands of people a day. 

All of the injured have been taken to the hospital, but their conditions were not given. Of the five dead, three were reportedly women.
