Modi visits India bridge collapse site; meets injured

STORY: The colonial-era suspension bridge over the Machchhu river was packed with sightseers - many in town to celebrate the Diwali and Chhath Puja festivals - when it broke on Sunday (October 30) evening, sending people plunging about 10 meters (33 feet) into the water.

Modi also chaired a high-level review meeting, where he told authorities to be in contact with the affected families.
