Pedestrian bridge collapse at Mumbai train station injures 5

Sawant saw the foot over bridge collapsing from a distance and quickly applied the emergency brakes. The heroic deed of Sawant earned accolades from Railway Minister Piyush Goyal - who visited the crash site yesterday.

As a precautionary measure, Mumbai Police have stopped all traffic above and below the bridge till the green signal from the Western Railway. As per reports, Mumbai is receiving heavy rains from last night and residents are facing difficulties to deal with daily tasks.

Rainfall is expected to cross 90mm in some parts of the city today.

The Opposition Congress and Nationalist Congress Party sharply criticized the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party-Shiv Sena for the Mumbai mess - second time since the June 9 downpour - and demanded stringent action against those responsible for it. The road overbridge is located in a busy area of Mumbai. The injured individuals have been sent to hospitals even as heavy rains hampered the operations, fire service department sources said. One of them, a woman, was critical.

There was no immediate confirmation whether the injured were commuters or pedestrians.

The bridge collapse has disrupted local Western Railway train services in Mumbai, as overhead wires have been affected due to the incident.

Local trains operating between Goregaon-Virar and Bandra-Churchgate, besides the Harbour Line from Bandra-CST, and several long-distance trains were cancelled or rescheduled or terminated at various locations, he said.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has spoken to Mumbai Police Commissioner and BMC commissioner about the incident. "Our officers have reached to the spot and accessing the situation", said Western Railway spokesperson Ravinder Bhakar.

"Restoration of OHE and tracks between Andheri-Vile Parle is going on a war footing to clear the tracks near Andheri where a part of ROB fell down on tracks", Western railway had said. Instead, commuters travelling from Andheri East to West are advised to follow the Bisleri junction - Teli Galli - Surve Chowk - Andheri subway - SV Road route, the Mumbai Traffic Control Branch said.
