Authorities said more than 150 people were on the suspension bridge across the river at the time of the collapse.

At least 60 people were killed when a footbridge collapsed over the Machkha River in the town of Morbi in the western Indian state of Gujarat.

Authorities said more than 150 people were on the suspension bridge across the river at the time of the collapse.

“So far 60 deaths have been confirmed,” said MP Mohan Kundaria.

Other officials said at least 30 people were injured.

The 230m historic bridge was built during the British rule in the 19th century. It was closed for renovations for six months and reopened to visitors last week.

Morbi is one of the largest ceramic manufacturing clusters in the world, accounting for more than 80% of India’s ceramic production.

The incident comes ahead of elections in Gujarat before the end of the year, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ruling party ending in February 2023.

Recall that 50 people suffered cardiac arrest as a result of a stampede while driving on a narrow street in the capital of South Korea, Seoul, during the massive Halloween celebration.
