At least five people, including two women, have been killed in the Indian city of Mumbai on Thursday after a foot over bridge collapsed near the central railway station, reports NDTV.
Around 36 other in the incident outside the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus station, it said.
Visuals showed that the middle of the bridge fell onto the road below. According to reports, the accident took place at around 7.30 pm.
The collapse at one of the busiest stations in Mumbai took place during peak hours, when there was a lot of rush on the overbridge.
The bridge connects to one of Mumbai's biggest local stations, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, which was the site of a militant attack in 2008, and is used by tens of thousands of commuters each day.
An eyewitness, Jaiveer, told Times Now that the rubble from the bridge fell on some commuters who were walking under the bridge.
ANI reported that senior police officers and the fire brigade, as well as ambulances, have been rushed. A team of National Disaster Relief Force (NDRF) has also been moved to the spot.
An excavator was brought in to clear the debris that had blocked the movement of traffic on a busy road in south Mumbai. Fire engines and an ambulance were also at the site, reports Reuters.
Maharashtra state chief minister Devendra Fadnavis said on Twitter he was pained to hear about the accident and had asked municipal and police officials to ensure speedy relief efforts.
The accident comes almost two years after 23 people died in a crush on a narrow overcrowded footbridge at Prabhadevi station in central Mumbai in September 2017.
