Video: Kolkata flyover crashes killing 18
At least 18 people are dead in Kolkata, India, and many more are trapped after a flyover under construction in a crowded commercial area came crashing down on Thursday. The 2-km flyover was coming up at Burrabazar, a busy area in central Kolkata, and it has been under construction since 2009, missing several deadlines. Television footage showed a body being pulled out and a bloody hand reaching out from under the rubble. Visuals also showed cars and a minibus buried under the collapsed bridge. Fires erupted when petrol tanks of cars were crushed.
