At least five persons were killed and another 30 injured, including some critically, when a portion of an overhead pedestrian bridge outside the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus came crashing down on Thursday evening.
The victims included three women - Apoorva Prabhu, 35, Ranjana Tambe, 40, and Bhakti Shinde, 40. The bridge connects the railway station to the Azad Maidan police station and the Times of India building in south Mumbai. The injured have been taken to hospital. Senior police officers were also present at the spot to conduct the operations.
The state's Education Minister Vinod Tawde said an audit of the bridge's safety was carried out a year ago. Witnesses said there were rumours of the old bridge collapsing which caused panic and chaos. "The plan included changing the tiles of the bridge and new paint", said an official. "Railway doctors & personnel are cooperating with BMC in relief & rescue operations", Ministry of Railways said.
