Buses fell from bridge destroyed by river in India, 22 died

Indian authorities fear that 22 people might be dead following the bridge collapse, when two buses fell into a flooded river, Associated Press reported today.


The bridge with a single lane connected the Mumbai-Goa highway. It collapsed this night, Maharashtra state's Chief Minister, Devendra Fadnavis, said.

Passengers of the bus haven’t been found by the rescue teams so far and believed to be dead. A total number of victims amounts to 22, two of them are drivers and two - conductors.

Experts believe that the bridge, which was built more than 70 years ago, might be destroyed by strong currents from the Savitri River flooded by monsoon rains.

The rescue team includes 80 specialists and a helicopter, who are doing their best to find the missed people. However, heavy rains put obstacles in their way.
