Bridge collapse kills two people

Two people have been killed 20 injured after a bridge collapsed after a heavy monsoon in eastern India.

The 100-year-old bridge collapsed on August 25 sending a truck, two cars and cart falling 20 feet into the Sakari river in the Navada district of Bihar state.

Heavy monsoon rains hit the region in the days leading up to the disaster and the water in the river was believed to be five feet deep.

Anil Kumar Yadav, the police superintendent, told The Associated Press that ten people had to be treated in hospital for serious injuries.
