Gujarat Bridge Collapse Updates: High-Powered Committee To Probe Incident, Says Minister

At least 141 people have died in Gujarat after a British-era bridge collapsed just a week after renovation. The suspension bridge — 200 km from Ahmedabad — collapsed at 6.42on Sunday when around 500 people had congregated on it to perform some rituals in connection with the Chhath puja.
About 19 people have been admitted to the hospital with serious injuries, officials said, adding that the rescue work is being carried out using boats.

Eyewitnesses say there were several women and children on the nearly 150-year-old bridge when cables supporting it snapped, sending scores of people tumbling into the river below.
