Under-construction bridge collapses in Mumbaiby CW Staff on Feb 7, 2013
An under-construction flyover near the Chatrapati Shivaji International Airport in the Marol suburb of Mumbai, India collapsed late Wednesday night, leaving three dead and seven injured.
Eight fire engines and a disaster management team were rushed to the spot, and all those trapped under debris were rescued.
“A large slab fell suddenly, trapping several people underneath it,” Uttam Korekar, a senior police inspector, told AFP at the site of the accident. “Most of them were labourers,” he added.
The flyover is part of a major construction project for a new terminal at the Chatrapati Shivaji International Airport.
The Mumbai police have registered a case of negligence against Larsen & Toubro , the company involved in the construction of the bridge.
The injured labourers were admitted to hospital and are reportedly now out of danger, according to firstpost.india.
In September last year, one person was killed and eight injured when a section of the under-construction Mumbai Metro bridge collapsed in Andheri East.
