Mindestens 140 Tote nach Brückeneinsturz in Indien

October 31, 2022 - Mindestens 141 Menschen sind im westlichen Gujarat Staat Sonntag gestorben, als eine Fußgänger Brücke in der Stadt Morbi eingestürzt ist und die Menschenmassen in den Fluss fielen.

The 230m Julto Pul (or the Hanging Bridge) on the Machchhu river was built in 1880, during British rule in India. The popular tourist attraction reopened a week ago after repairs, according to the BBC.

Officials have not yet said how many people were on the bridge when tragedy struck at around 18:40 (13:10 GMT) on Sunday, but estimates put it between 400 and 500.

More than 177 people have been rescued, officials said.
