PM Modi Visits Morbi Bridge Collapse Site, Meets Survivors At Hospital

Morbi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday visited the Morbi bridge collapse site and reviewed the ongoing search and rescue operations.

Officials briefed the prime minister about the rescue operations at the site where 135 people were killed on Sunday when the British-era suspension bridge on the Machchhu river collapsed.

Before he arrived at the spot, the prime minister conducted an aerial survey of the location.

Soon after the bridge visit, the Prime Minister reached the civil hospital in Morbi where the injured are being treated. The Prime Minister was seen asking the survivors about their health.

The British-era suspension bridge in Morbi, which had been closed since March for renovation, collapsed on Sunday night – just four days after it reopened to the public. At least 47 children, several women and elderly are among the dead, according to the officials.
