On Sunday evening, a bridge in the western Indian state of Gujarat collapsed, killing at least 141 people. According to officials, the catastrophe claimed the lives of women, children, and the elderly.

When he informed BBC Gujarati that he couldn’t find his six-year-old sister who was standing on the bridge when it fell, he was inconsolable.

“We were on the bridge at the time. There were hundreds of individuals in attendance.

“This was my first time climbing this bridge. My sister and I were shooting pictures on our phones when the bridge fell.

“My sister and I both ended up in the ocean. My sister is still gone, despite the fact that I survived.”

Weeping, he stated that he had been searching for her since Sunday evening.

“I went to the public hospital and looked everywhere, but my sister was nowhere to be seen.”

’50-60 people were hanging from the shattered bridge,’ said one witness.
