Goa: 50 fall into river after bridge collapses in Curchorem; rescue operation underway

Several people fell into Sanvordem river at Curchorem village in Goa this evening as a dilapidated Portuguese-era bridge collapsed.

The bridge caved in when the state Fire And Emergency Services personnel were rescuing a youth who had jumped into the river apparently in a suicide bid.

“Around 50 people had gathered on the bridge to watch the rescue operation, and all of them fell into the river as it collapsed,” a police official said.
