Three feared dead in Pakistan bridge collapse

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)

STORY: At least three people are feared dead after a dilapidated bridge near Pakistan’s northwestern city of Peshawar collapsed on them as they were passing under it.

The bridge over the Bara River in the village of Bazid Khel suddenly caved in on Thursday afternoon, burying at least three people under huge blocks of concrete.

Witnesses said half of the bridge crumbled, bringing down huge blocks of concrete into the gushing flood waters below. Frantic relatives struggled to find the bodies but were unable to recover the three men.

The rescue operation started in full strength early Friday (May 22) morning.

Army engineers said, although it was dangerous, they would have to divert the water flow for rescue efforts to progress.

Meanwhile, enraged villagers blocked the main road demanding the government take action against the irrigation department which was responsible for maintenance of the bridge.
