Tragedy | 14 Dead, 150 Trapped As Flyover Collapses In India

Breaking… A flyover under construction in the crowded Indian city of Kolkata (Calcutta), collapsed on Thursday on to vehicles and street vendors below, killing at least 14 people with more than 100 people feared trapped.

Residents are seen using their bare hands to try to rescue people pinned under a 100-metre (110-yard) length of metal and cement that snapped off at one end and came crashing down in a teeming commercial district near Girish Park.

Safety issues such with lack of inspections and the use of substandard materials have plagued construction projects in India.
