Bangladesh: 4 dead, over 100 injured as train plunges after bridge collapses

Published on : Saturday, August 24, 2019

Four people were killed and more than hundred injured when a train plunged into a canal in at Kalaura, 300 kilometres (185 miles) from Dhaka. This happened as the bridge the train was travelling across gave way.

 

Part of the bridge collapsed, as the express train went over it, sending five cars crashing to the ground, with one of them landing in the water.

 

Local people joined fire and police teams in pulling the dead and injured out of the wreckage, Rashidul Hasan, a police superintendent, told reporters.

 

Regional government administrator, Tofael Islam, said, part of the bridge gave way as the train was crossing it.

 

Twenty-one of the injured were taken to a hospital in Sylhet, the nearest city, in serious condition.

 

Train services from Dhaka to the north-east were stopped because of the accident.
