Death Toll In Mumbai-Goa Highway Bridge Collapse Rises To Three
The death toll in Mumbai-Goa highway bridge collapse on Thursday rose to 3 as body of a driver of one of missing buses recovered from Anjarle area in Dapoli, say police.

The death toll in Mumbai-Goa highway bridge collapse on Thursday rose to four as two more dead bodies were recovered, say police.

The bridge, more than seven decades old and a critical link to the Mumbai-Goa national highway, crashed around 1 a.m. on Wednesday due to the flood waters rushing into the river.

Two state transport buses with 11 passengers each were missing and there was no contact with either their drivers or the passengers, Raigad Collector Sheetal Ugale said.

Since the Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation buses — which started from Mumbai — did not arrive at their scheduled Mahad depot, Ugale appealed people to get in touch with the concerned authorities about their missing relatives.

Locals said that around five to six private vehicles were also missing and they were feared to be washed away in the floods.

Massive search operation is still on.
