Today, the last day in March is a sad one in Kolkata, India as a portion of a flyover under construction has collapsed over taxis and other vehicles, leaving in its wake, multiple deaths, injuries and entrapment.
About 14 people reportedly lost their lives, while 70 others sustained various degrees of injuries. Sadly 150 others are said to still be trapped under the rubble.
According to reports from LIB
Witnesses say rescuers are using their bare hands to try to save those caught under the rubble. Television footage shows people passing water bottles through to those who are crying out for help from beneath the debris.
One witness has told the New Delhi Television news channel (NDTV): “We heard a loud rumble and then saw a lot of dust in the sky.”
